I am not new to uppers - just this pair I got yesterday. No healing required, just a brand new denture. They are gorgeous. Perfect. But the center is off by 1/16th-3/32s of an inch (maybe more) - is there any adjustment my dentist (who I love) can do to correct this?

Dang lol! I was afraid of this. I have waited SO long for new ones, and was so happy until I realized this when I got home. Thank you for the info.

What do you mean by off center? I just noticed that my permanent dentures which I got a few weeks ago do not line up with the bridge of my nose. I told my dentist and she said she lined it up with my upper lip. I really don't know if that is correct or just a cover up. Please let me know what you mean that the center is off. Thanks

The center between the two front teeth is not quite right - it seems to line up with my lip but I kind of feel that it's off a hair, but I decided it looks pretty good and I hardly notice it at all (no one else noticed it) unless I stare at it.
