Dear Sandeepa,

Age is not a major problem to get your teeth corrected with braces. However, early correction is encouraged for better coorperation and outcome. Cost of treatment varies upon what kind of orthodontic treatment (braces) will be chosen best for you. 

Moreover, braces is just one option to correct a gap between front teeth. Please consult the dental surgeon in Kurunegala hospital who will examine you and advise accordingly.
