My friend is having a lot of gaps between his teeth. I went through internet and found the gaps are due to smaller tooth underdeveloped. I have read that I might need to transplant a new tooth. Is there any other way to reduce the gaps please help.

Gaps may be due to small teeth or due to other reason also. If it is due to small teeth you need to put caps on the teeth. If tooth size is noal gaps may be closed by orthodontic treatment (braces).
Hi, depends on your tooth condition. If gaps r not too much then you can close them up with tooth coloured filling, but if gaps r too wide then you might have to use ceramic veneers (type of crowns. These are just suggestions. I would recommend you see a dentist for a thorough treatment plan. All da best.
Normally spaces between the teeth can be treated and those gaps can be closed with the help of orthodontic braces. As you said, if your teeth are small or underdeveloped, after check up we can exactly say what exact treatment you require. In healthy dentition there is no need of replacement of teeth, we can treat it accordingly with advance treatment aids.
