IT’S A WRAP FOR THE GAP … at least, temporarily.

Michael Strahan underwent a procedure to close the iconic gap between his two front teeth and he looks great!

Strahan teamed up with Dr. Lee Gause at Smile Design Manhattan — and explained he wanted to explore what he would look like without the famous space in his megawatt smile.

Long story short … Strahan says if he would have discussed closing the gap with anyone in his life — from friends to business associates and people online — they would have tried to talk him out of it.

But, we’re told the dentist proposed a temporary solution — essentially a removable dental piece that gives the look of a filled-in tooth line.

After the procedure, the 49-year-old NFL legend and beloved TV host looked in the mirror and declared, "I love it! Holy f**k!"

Yes, we notice the timing of the dental work … April 1 is right around the corner — but we’ll see if Strahan sticks with the new look.

Obviously, Strahan’s gap was iconic — and he’s talked about it for years … explaining his parents told him to embrace the look.

He previously put it this way … "I made the conscious effort to say, ‘This is who I am.’"

In fact, just days before the big reveal, Strahan tweeted — "I rock my gap with pride! It’s who I am!"

But hey, people can change, right?
