What is paintless dent removal?
Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) is a technique of repairing dents by pushing the metal back into its original shape without affecting factory paint. This is the least expensive, highly effective, and most efficient method to remove creases and dents in your car without any damage to the paint. Car owners and San Diego dent repair experts Dent Geek use the PDR technique to address hail damage, small body creases, bumper indentations, and door dents. PDR is also a great choice to prepare the damaged panel for paint. This is the so-called “push for paint” technique.
Will my dents be 100% gone?
More often than not, you’ll get rid of 100% of dents. Nevertheless, the success rate depends on the depth of the dents. A very deep dent may be tricky to repair.

If you were to go to an auto body shop to fix your dent, the chances are that the dent develops a ring around it within three to six months from the repair. The PDR method won’t cause such problems, provided that you do it the correct way.
Can any dent be fixed?
No. The depth and the location of the dent will determine whether or not it can be fixed by using the PDR method. When they aren’t too deep, even dents the size of a large place can be fixed without any problem. On the contrary, small but very deep dents are impossible to fix by PDR, because the sheet metal is too stretched.

Cracked paint is usually a sign that a dent is too deep. The usual size of successfully fixed dents is 2-3 inches. The technique is successful in about 95% of minor dents. The 5% that can’t be fixed is either too deep or located in a place where applying PDR isn’t possible.
