What Can Be Fixed?

Ding Doctor of Massachusetts has been providing paintless dent repairs to Falmouth, MA and surrounding areas for over 20 years. Our paintless dent repair is very effective for the following situations:

  • Very small to large dents
  • Generally 1990 model year and newer vehicles
  • The paint has not been broken or cracked
  • The dent is not near the edge of a panel
  • The panel has not had previous body repair

Insurance companies use "hail teams" that "chase hail" because PDR is so effective for hail damage. These teams travel to areas that were hit by hail to repair vehicle damage using PDR techniques.

Not all damage to the body of a vehicle can be repaired with PDR techniques. If a dent cannot be removed completely, a repair can make the damage almost unnoticeable.

Advantages of Paintless Dent Repair

A number of advantages for paintless dent repair by Ding Doctor of Massachusetts include:

  • No repainting or body filler needed
  • Less expensive than traditional body repair
  • Same-day service in most cases
  • No risk of paint overspray on other vehicle areas
  • No risk of incorrect color matching
  • Vehicle retains original paint

A vehicle with original paint retains a higher value than a repainted vehicle. Even if it is just a door or a fender, it is always preferable to maintain the original paint on a vehicle for as long as possible.

How Is It Done?

PDR technicians use specialized tools to push the metal back into its original shape from behind the dent. Depending on the location of the damage, the panel is accessed by removing trim pieces, through window openings or by removing inner panels. Upon completion of repair there is no evidence of repair work done.

Before and After PDR

In a typical dent removal, the metal around the outside edge of the dent is slowly massaged back into its original position. The dent becomes progressively smaller as the technician works from the outside edge; eventually the dent becomes so small it blends with the texture of the paint and disappears completely. Specially designed lights are used to create an image on damaged area that allows the technician to read highs and lows in the dent. Then a series of PDR tools are used with a lot of patience and time to restore the metal to its original condition.

Each dent is unique and the removal procedure can be different each time.
