With PDR, the goal is to push the indented metal back into shape while preserving the factory paint. First, a technician determines the best way to access the damaged area either through a window opening or by removing trim pieces or inner panels.
If your damage does qualify for Paintless Dent Repair, the process will take only a hour or so for a single dent. For hail damage, the process usually takes between 1-3 days. This will depend on the extent of the damage to the vehicle.
Damage like a door ding, a basketball sized dent, or hail damage to your car can likely be removed using Paintless Dent Removal.
It isn't feasible to use this repair method in certain circumstances:
The dent has sharp edges or torn metal.
The paint inside a dent is broken or scratched.
The indented metal is situated near the edge of a panel.
The dented area has had previous body work done.
