Paintless Dent Repair: How Does it Work?

If your car has received a bump in a parking garage mishap or gotten dinged by some unexpected hail - and still has its paint intact - then never fear. You can likely get it fixed with paintless dent repair. What exactly does that entail, though? This is what you can expect when your car undergoes this service at J.B.A. Collision Center in Glen Burnie, MD.

What is Paintless Dent Repair?

Whether it's hail damage, a slight ding, or a crease in your car's body, specially designed tools can be used to return your car to looking like almost new with paintless dent repair. This fix is all about massaging the metal back to its original shape, allowing your car to keep its factory finish without breaking your budget.

How Does It Work?

To fix a vehicle's body with this method, the technician will approach the dent from the inside. After selecting the appropriate tools for the job, they'll access the area where the dent has occurred. Once there, the technician can apply the proper amount of pressure on the dent, while simultaneously holding other tools against the outside of your vehicle. Doing so makes sure that the dent isn't inverted and doesn't push too far in the other direction.

After a bit of time and work, your dent could simply disappear, returning your car to its original appearance. It's important to note that the metal is still damaged, though. This means that an incident in the same area would be much worse than it would be otherwise and might take more time to fix in the future. Also, keep in mind that this method is only appropriate if your car's paint job hasn't been damaged. If your paint's integrity has been lost, then you likely have to undergo the costly procedure of having it repainted.
