Paintless dent repair, also known as paintless dent removal, is a method of removing minor dents from the body of a motor vehicle. A wide range of damage can be repaired using paintless dent removal as long as the paint surface is intact. The most common use for paintless dent removal is the repair of hail damage, door dings, minor creases, large dents and bodylines damage.

At Desantis Collision Center our technicians are experts in paintless dent repair for both small and large dents. Paintless dent repair maintains the original factory paint and removes surface imperfections while extracting the dent.  We start your restoration by thoroughly inspect the damage to your vehicle to determine whether or not paintless dent repair suits your needs.  The original factory paint on most standard vehicles is flexible, meaning that minor dents can often be repaired without painting, depending on the depth and location of the damage.

The process may also be ideal for hail damage and low impact dent repair. Paintless dent repair involves carefully manipulating minor dents and dings without adding or removing any paint from the vehicle. We often use this technique when dealing with outer panel strikes or indentations that haven’t stripped paint from the vehicle.

Our technicians also factor in the location of the damage when assessing your vehicle. If the dent is on the hood or the edges of a door panel, paintless dent repair may not be the best solution.

Paintless Dent Repair Process

In order to execute a paintless dent repair, our technicians access the back of the dent and use specialized tools designed for dent removal. This provides a view of both sides of the dent and allows our painters to apply pressure accordingly while manipulating the dent and eventually restoring it back to its previous shape.

We use fluorescent light boards to create shadows in the dent, which aid our technicians in navigating the damaged areas and manipulating the dent so it’s level. After using the tools carefully around the edges of the dent for extraction, the size of the dent will minimize and ultimately disappear.
