Frequently Asked Questions about Paintless Dent Repair

What is Paintless Dent Repair?

It is a revolutionary process which allows small to large sized minor dents and dings to be removed while preserving the vehicle’s original paint and finish.

How is it done?

To perform a paintless dent repair, a skilled Dent Solution technician works from the backside of the panel, using metal rods and picks to massage out minor dents and dings ranging from creases and parking lot dings to hail damage.

How long does it take?

Average repairs usually take only 10 to 20 minutes, from start to finish. It can be done while you wait!

What percentage of dents and dings are repairable?

80 to 90% of the minor dings and dents found on a vehicle are repairable.

What types of dents and dings cannot be repaired?

Most dings and dents can be made to look "better", some requiring more time and effort depending on the accessibility of the dent. There are, however, some problem repairs:

  • Deep dents - On very deep dings and dents, the metal is often pushed too deep for a complete repair.
  • Dents near the edge of panels - Dents found near the edge of body panels, or right on a seam, can make access impossible.
  • Dents and Dings with Deep Creases – It usually requires a skilled dent repair technician to repair creased dents, depending on the severity of the crease. In many cases, a 100% repair is not possible.

What about dents and dings located under braces?

Most of the dents found under braces can be accessed and removed by your Dent Solution Technician.

What size dents can be repaired using Paintless Dent Repair technology?

The most important size aspect to consider when using Paintless Dent Repair is not the diameter of the dent, but the depth. Often very large, shallow dents can be removed or, at least, improved.
