Nothing will happen, until you have the half-yearly checkup with your dentist and maintain hygiene.

U may come across sensitivity on ageing.. Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need cleaning along with desensitizing procedures and / or artificial enamel filling and / or root canal treatment. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. You may consult me in person. Until then apply a desensitizing paste (Sensodyne Tooth paste) on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min until you brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight will be better. Advance procedures can be done with laser. You may consult me in person.

Gap can be filled either by capping or artificial enamel filling or enamel bonding or braces, depends upon individual teeth arrangments and condition. You have got right treatment. Have faith on your dentist. Take care of your oral hygiene.
