Plastic shims made for this specific purpose are available at Home Centers such as HD and Lowes. It may just be the bowl or the floor that is causing the gap.

Common procedure when needing to use shims is to caulk around the toilet base after installing them. Always leave the back side of the bowl open so if there is a leak later, it will show from this area and not just be trapped and rot the floor.

Yes, thats the reason. Some floor surfaces and some bowls are just not flat and even. When you need to use shims, it adds another step to the process, and that is using caulk or grout.
