I had the same problem when I upgraded to System 8.1. The Appearance
Extension can be updated with a fix from Wolfram. This took care of the
problem, but it sounds as if you may be out of luck if you're using OS 8.5+
(short of restarting the session, which is effective but annoying).

The faq and fix are described:

If you're using Mathematica under MacOS 8.0 (or later) and the fonts aren't
appearing correctly (i.e. characters overlap or spaces disappear), you might
be running into a MacOS 8.0-specific bug. Please see the following web page
for more information. ...This patch is not compatible with MacOS 8.5 and
8.6. We are continuing to work on a solution for these problems under that
version of MacOS.
