So What is Paintless Dent Removal?

A method of removing minor dents from a motor vehicle is called Paintless Dent Repair. If the paint is intact, a wide range of damage can be repaired with paintless dent repair. Paintless dent repair is available on both aluminum and steel panels.

Most of the time, paintless dent repair is used for hail damage, door dings, minor creases, large dents, and body-lines damage.

It is possible to use the method to prepare a damaged panel for painting. This technique is called “push to paint” or “push to prep”.

The flexibility of the paint and the extent to which the metal has been stretched by the damage are limiting factors for a successful repair using paintless dent repair. Paintless dent repair is a good option if the dents are shallow. As long as the metal and paint are not stretched, dents several inches in diameter can be repaired by this method. A shallow large dent or crease can be repaired to an acceptable level, but very sharp dents and creases may not be suitable for paintless dent repair.

How Long Does Paintless Dent Repair Take Under Normal Circumstances?

In most cases, a standard paintless dent repair can be done on the same day. Damage such as size, positioning on the vehicle, and quantity of dents can affect the amount of time it takes to repair a vehicle. It can take a few days for hail damage to be completely removed from the vehicle. Of course, if there are thousands of damaged cars from a local hail storm the PDR shops are all going to be busy making repairs, working long days to get everyone’s ride back to normal and this will of course impact the time to make your repairs.  At Rocky Mountain Dent Service we strive to provide accurate repair time estimates so you can rest easy knowing your vehicle will be ready for pickup.

How Paintless Dent Removal Works

There is no step-by-step dent removal method, and it’s not as simple as just “popping out” the dent. In fact, our trained technicians at RMDS have spent years honing their skills to deliver the best results.

The basic process of paintless dent removal and hail damage repair include:

  • Create Access to the Dent – PDR is performed on the reverse side of the damaged area, so we’ll need to remove vehicle panels and trim to give us access to the dent.
  • Determine the Right Tools – The technician will choose from a wide variety of tools specifically designed for paintless dent removal – rods, wedges or whale tails.
  • Repair the Dent or Hail Damage – To restore your vehicle, the technician will apply pressure to the underside of the dent and “massage” the metal back into shape.

Types of Paintless Dent Removal

Depending on the extent of the dent or hail damage, there are a number of approaches we might take.


Your vehicle can be returned to pre-damaged condition without replacing or refinishing any panels.


Portions of your vehicle can be repaired with PDR and may need body repair or panel replacement.


Requires refinish of certain panels, but PDR may reduce the body repairs or panel replacements needed.
