Mid line diastema in most of the cases reverses back. You are not clear in what exactly was done with dental lasers.
No dentist can fix any gap between the teeth using lasers. What i feel is that the gap was fixed with composite resin restoration which requires a light cure gun at the end, and you are confused with the light cure gun as dental lasers.
Coming back to your query, if the resin restoration has come out then one can easily redo it in a single sitting.
Thanks and Regards

hello and welcome to hcm forum,
the gap in between the central incisors may be due to high frenal attachment which is known as midline diasthema.
frenectomy has to be performed first for closure of space.
then orthodontic appliances can be used.
visit your dentist for further procedures.

Thanks for the query.
Usually gap in the centre of upper teeth may be because of high frenal attachment as you said that laser treament has been done to your gums suppose if the correction was made only to your gums and not the frenal attachment then there is very much posiblity for the relapse ... in such case you have to go for frenectomy first then closure of the gap in between the central incisors .
