I have a gap in my front teeth, I am reluctant to get crowns as I am only 21 but worry a brace would not be enough, what do you think?

I have a 1cm gap between my front teeth but all the rest of my teeth are straight and line up. I went to see a dentist about getting the gap closed but was told by using braces he would have to move all my teeth forward to close the gap and that may not work or he could cut down my teeth and close it with crowns but he would be reluctant to do that as im only 21. So i came out of the appointment having been offered no solution. Is there any way i could get the gap closed and keep my natural teeth?
A 1cm gap seems huge, this would be very difficult to close although braces would work best in the long term for a young patient

I have got a gap in all my teeth and i can fit a store though them all and I think that I need braces and I have been to the orthodontics and they said that they cant do it and it is to much to go private what should I do?

I would suggest you go to a different Orthodontics and see if they can help you. There is so many different types of braces on the market these days and private might not be as expensive as you think.
