Reuse of mantel when refacing brick fireplace?

I'm planning on refacing my brick fireplace with tiles and I would like to reuse the existing mantel. However, won't the mantel have a gap from the wall (equal to the depth of the thinset + tile)? How do you address this gap?

Welcome to the forums Becca!

Not sure I understand the question Is the mantel wider than the brick? Could you post a pic or two?
