Your question doesn't contain much information. Just from the way certain parts of it are phrased, we're guessing you are fairly young.
If so, spaces between teeth sometimes close in (at least somewhat) as additional permanent teeth come in. So possibly your orthodontist felt that at this point they should wait and see what happens before beginning treatment.
The only other way to close a large diastema is by placing crowns or porcelain veneers (as discussed above). That type of procedure isn't usually performed until the patient reaches age 18 or so (a point when most jaw growth has taken place).
