Traditional braces are usually the fastest way but new techniques such as Invisalign are clear retainers that provide a fast, steady and more aesthetic approach
There are several ways to close gaps between teeth. Several clear aligners are available as well as traditional braces. Visit your local orthodontist or General Dentist. They can guide you in the right direction.

It depends on a number of conditions of your mouth; but gaps can be close by invisalign and invisalign-like aligners in as little a couple of months.
You have a few options to close spaces or diastemas. One would be to undergo orthodontic therapy (I.e Invisalign or braces). For a faster approach you can consider porcelain or composite veneers, which would close the spaces, reshape the teeth and give you a whiter smile.
The quickest way to close gaps between your teeth could be with Veneers, bonding sometimes can also be done. It is advisable to sit with a Dentist and discuss what your goals are so to be able to make the best decision in closing your gaps. If you are not in a hurry and have the time, Invisalign may be just what you need.
Orthodontic braces/short-term ortho.
First, fast does not always mean the most ideal outcome. Choosing the right procedure is dependent on the width of the gaps and your expected outcome. Generally, small gaps = bonding (quick); large gaps = porcelain veneers (slower), Invisalign Orthodontics (slowest).
Although I prefer to discuss treatment in person having seen the specifics of the problem first hand, one option may be direct bonding which is done in one visit
The fastest and simplest way to close "gaps" between the front teeth is with bonding material. Ideally an evaluation should be done to identify the severity of the spacing problem and diagnose any biologic issues that might be present like decay or gum disease. After your problems are evaluated a review of findings and an action plan could be formulated to address your specific needs. If your "gaps" or spacing is too severe bonding would not be an appropriate choice. The only way to determine what is most appropriate for you is to have an examination in order to know for sure.

Ortho is your best option. These are many options within Ortho such as getting standard braces, Invisalign and Invisalign Go just to name a few. The best option is to see your dentist and they can refer you to the Orthodontist and also ensure that you do not have current dental issues that will have to be taken care of before you start any ortho treatment. Hope this helps.
There are multiple options to close the gaps between the teeth. This can be accomplished via orthodontic treatment using braces or Invisalign; or even via cosmetic dentistry, veneers or crowns. With orthodontic treatment, the teeth are moved into the correct position to close the gaps. However, with cosmetic dentistry, the teeth are not moved, but the gaps are closed utilizing fillings, veneers or crowns. Cosmetic dentistry would be the fastest way to close the gaps, but this may not be the best option for your mouth or teeth. Orthodontic treatment is the best way to level and align your teeth, but again, this may not be the best option if the size of teeth is mismatched, thereby making some cosmetic work necessary even after orthodontic work. There are several advantages of orthodontic treatment, but the disadvantage is that it takes much longer than other means. It would be best to consult a local dentist or an orthodontist to discuss the options that would be best for your individual situation because an option that is best for another person may not be the best option for you for the long-term health and stability of your teeth. There are many factors that influence the decision-making process in this situation; for example, the existing health of your gums and teeth, your facial appearance, size of your teeth, to name a few. Therefore, a consultation with a dental health professional would be the best starting point in my opinion.
Without seeing you or any diagnostic materials, it's tough to say, but as a general rule, if the spacing is not too bad and it is not poorly distributed, the quickest way is through restorative dentistry, not orthodontics. This can be done with build-ups, veneers, crowns, etc.
There are a few options to close gaps. First of all an exam and x-rays are needed to definitively provide diagnosis and treatment options. In general gaps can be closed with orthodontics which includes braces or Invisalign. Veneers which will cover the entire front surface of the teeth visible in your smile. Bonding can be performed which is white filling applied to sides of teeth to close gaps. Each option has pros and cons. Braces or Invisalign can take 1-2 years to complete and require your cooperation. As well as a retainer to be worn to keep your teeth in position after treatment is completed. Veneers require some tooth preparation which includes drilling the enamel surface off of the teeth which makes room for the veneer. Bonding is weaker in hold and overall strength, can stain over time and has a tendency to needs replacement in a few years. Cost for each option would require a consultation. In general Bonding is least expensive followed by orthodontics and most costly is veneers.
There are different ways to do so. It can be done with orthodontic treatment , which can be done either by the traditional method or by aligners such as Invisalign .it can be done by veneers or even direct composite restorations. Which line of treatment works best for you is up to your dentist to decide.
Braces (metal or clear) or Removable Aligners (such as Invisalign) are great options for closing gaps between teeth.
Braces or clear aligners can correct spacing. How quickly depends on how much space there is and how the teeth fit together.
Either bonding or Express Invisalign.
Placement of braces will close spaces. Invisalign could also be used!
