What kind of dents can be repaired paintless?

Every dent is unique and not two vehicles have the exact same shape. Because of this, we see a wide variety of dents in all shapes and sizes. When it comes to car dent repair we look at the complexity of the dent. A more complex dent means that it’s more difficult to repair. Factors that play into dent complexity are:


If the dent is creased, it might be able to be repaired with paintless dent repair. Creases make it difficult to restore the body panel to its regular shape.

A good way to visualize a crease is to imagine crushing a pop can: if you just push your thumb into it, it will leave a crease free dent that can easily be manipulated back to its original shape.If you use your fist to crush the can, it will leave creases.

No matter how much you try to smooth it out, it will almost never return to its original shape.


Another important consideration when it comes to paintless dent removal is the depth of the dent in your vehicle. Shallow dents are often easier to repair than deeper dents. The deeper the dent, the less likely the paint will be able to return to its original shape.

Common causes of small dents that can be repaired with PDR:

  • Collisions
  • Door dings
  • Hail
  • Falling objects
  • Sports accidents

If our skilled professionals can access the area behind the dent, we can often repair the dent with the paintless dent repair process.

The best thing about PDR is that we don’t need to add body filler, repaint, or even disturb your vehicle’s factory paint during the process.

Because of this, PDR is less time consuming than the traditional car dent repair process where the body panel is sanded down, body filler is added, and the panel repainted. If you want to have your vehicle dent free for a fraction of the cost and in less time, the paintless dent repair process is the best way to restore your vehicle’s body.

Does Paintless Dent Removal last?

Good news: PDR is a permanent solution. Since PDR involves reshaping the metal, main people mistakenly believe that over time the dent can pop  back in. This is definitely not the case. Once the damaged panel has been repaired, it will retain the same strength that it had before the dent occurred. 

Not only is PDR your  best option for most car dent repairs, it’s also the most economical and time-saving choice. Depending on the size of your dent, our technician can finish the repair job in a matter of hours. PDR almost never takes a full day, and in some cases, you may only hae to wait an hour or two before you can drive your car home again.

Even if you don’t have a lot of flexibility in your day, you won’t have to sacrifice too much time getting your car dent repaired. We also offer mobile dent repair options if you’re really strapped for time.
