No matter how careful you are with your car, dents are going to happen. It doesn’t take much for something to cause a dent, whether it is a rolling shopping cart in a parking lot or the handlebar of a bicycle in the driveway. Even a minor dent should be addressed as a break in the paint could lead to rust, something that is extremely damaging to your car’s exterior. Due to modern technology, minor dents can now be repaired using paintless dent removal which requires no body filler, sanding or painting.
In the Past
In the past, when your car suffered a minor dent, a body repair technician had to either replace the entire section of the car or use a suction tool to remove the dent. The suction tool required that a small hole be drilled near the dent which then required body filler, sanding and painting. The repair was often noticeable because it was difficult to match the paint exactly.
Paintless Dent Removal
Today, instead of removing the section with the dent or drilling a hole and suctioning the dent, auto body technicians can use paintless dent removal. Using this process, the technician restructures the dent from behind or below by pushing the dent back into place. Because the pressure is behind or under the dent, the outside of the car remains intact. This means that there is no need for body filler, sanding or painting the damaged area once the dent is repaired.
