Question about 1999 Buick Century
You may have bad rotors that are not up to par as even if the rotors are off by .05mm, it will allow the rotor to slip between the pads.
You should have your rotors inspected... and if that's not the cause, then change your calipers

You mean inner brake pads not contacting rotors Is it just one or both frt or both rear? most likely pads are not sliding on knuckle there is a metal shim probably full of rust & dirt causing piston not to push pad against rotor. Try to push caliper left & right should move on slides if not seized also check to see if brake hose is kinked, Did this all happen after repairs or you diag brake problem I gave you a good start before you condemn calipers
