    The uneven sharing of the electron pair(s) causes the bond to be slightly negative at one end and slightly positive at the other (charge separation as aayushi ^ said). This type of bond is described as polar. The more unequally the paired electrons are shared, the more polar the bond. Examples of polar molecules are: 1) water \[H _{2}O\] 2) hydrogen chloride \[HCl\] and 3) ammonia \[NH _{4}\]. Hope this helped!
