Knowing what type of dent you have is a great place to start and a great way to determine what sort of repair you are going to need.

 

Smaller dents can often be pulled out with dent kits and do not leave much outward damage. For larger dents, you may have to take the panel off and work the dent from the back. No matter what sort of dent you have to deal with, a great body shop can find a way to help remove it.

Types of Auto Dents

Simple or “Soft Dents”

Small dents do not crease the sheet metal or damage the paint. These types of dents are caused by slow-speed parking lot encounters, a tree branch falling, a shopping cart or even hailstones.

Compound Dents

These types of dents can often be repaired using the original part on your car without requiring a new panel to be ordered. These are dents that crease the metal and crack the paint. In many cases, these types of dents do not affect the drivability of your vehicle, but the cracked paint will continue to cause rust and if left unattended, may reach a point where the entire body panel may need replacement.

Structural Dents

This type of damage may also involve frame or suspension damage. This type of dent goes beyond the simple “Fender Bender and the damage and often renders the vehicle undrivable.  Often, these extended types of damage are not immediately apparent and the full extent is not discovered until the repair work has started.
