A diastema - or gap teeth as is popularly known - is a space or gap between two teeth. Many species of mammals have diastemata as a normal feature, most commonly between the incisors and molars.

The gaps are common for children and can exist in adult teeth as well. And while it is not a standard of beauty in places like the United States, it is considered a sign of beauty.
