Depending on the tools, techniques, and auto technician skills deployed, PDR can eliminate dents without sanding, filler, or painting over the dent. Paintless dent repair was once the province of a few specialized auto shops. Today, it is being heralded by large auto insurance companies, repair shops, and a growing legion of satisfied
customers, all of whom swear that the process marks a watershed event for the repair industry.
This isn’t to say the traditional body shop techniques are irrelevant. Indeed, paintless dent repair
is not necessarily the only or best solution.
PDR may not be appropriate in the following conditions:

If the paint on your car or truck is cracked;

If you have a dent near a panel’s edge;

If you are trying to repair an older vehicle (made before 1990);

If you have extremely large dents or complicated damage.
