The space between two front teeth in upper jaw is termed as midline diastema. Diastema means 'interval' in Greek.
When the space (or gap) becomes greater than 0.5mm between the middle-front two teeth in the upper jaw- it is called midline diastema.
One may be self-conscious about having a space between their teeth. However, a diastema also can affect speech especially “s” and “th’.
In France, the teeth present on both sides of spacing are called as Dents Du Bonheur or ”Lucky teeth”!
Unless it needs some medical attention, having gap teeth are rather harmless.
In Nigeria, gaps between teeth is considered an exceptionally attractive physical trait.
Diastema are prominently displayed in many renowned personalities from different walks of life like David Letterman, Elton John, Eddie Murphy, Madonna, Lauren Hutton, Michael Strahan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Condoleezza Rice, to name a few!
Next time just flash that wide smile to the camera no matter what instead of hiding it😁

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
