5 Reasons to Choose Paintless Dent Repair

Dent damage to your vehicle reduces its aesthetic appeal and can frustrate you. There are several options for repairing body damage. Consider why you choose paintless dent repair for your vehicle and wallet.

What is Paintless Dent Repair?

Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) removes dents, dings, and hail damage from vehicles without sanding, filling, or repainting the damaged area.

The process involves massaging the metal back into its original shape from inside and outside the panel using special tools.

PDR is quicker, less expensive, and less intrusive than traditional body repair and helps maintain the vehicle’s original finish.

Reasons to Choose Paintless Dent Repair

Many vehicle owners choose paintless dent repair because of the many benefits the approach offers, including:

  • Fast
  • Cost-Effective
  • Preserves original paint
  • Eco-friendly
  • Maintains value


Paintless dent repair, if applicable, is the fastest method of repairing automotive body damage. You will only need to leave your vehicle at a body shop for a few weeks.

Many small repairs only take a few hours, and 95 percent of PDR repairs are a same-day service. Some repairs can even be done while you wait. 

 Moreover, without the need to replace or repaint body panels, we are never stuck waiting for back-ordered parts or shipping delays.

At Canadian Dent, we rarely have to dismantle the car or remove body panels during PDR, saving you time and money. 

We are committed to getting your vehicle looking its best as quickly as possible, and that’s one of the top reasons people choose PDR at Canadian Dent for their repairs.

More Affordable

Traditional body shops use a different method of dent repair, including full panel replacement or sanding, painting, and filling to fix the damage.

All of these add on extra costs for labour and parts. At Canadian Dent, our PDR method does not require any of this extra work for your vehicle. This means we can offer you a better price for our repair services. 

Maintains Original Factory Paint

There is much to be said about keeping the original factory paint for your vehicle. 

Most traditional bodywork involves sanding paint off the damaged panels, repairing, and then repainting your vehicle. However, with PDR, there is no sanding and no painting.

The original paint applied to your car in the factory will always perform the best. Any time you repaint a vehicle, you risk having a suboptimal paint application and can get blistering, peeling, and degradation of the repainted section.

Moreover, some colours can be tough to match to the original panels that need to be repainted, making your car look better. To someone with a trained eye, it can be easy to tell if a car has been repainted. 

With the Canadian Dent approach, you won’t have to worry about the appearance of your paint job as you’ll keep all the original paint. It’s the best thing for your vehicle’s appearance and bodywork.

Doesn’t Affect Vehicle Title/Carfax

Anytime you want to sell your vehicle, buyers – including dealerships – will want to look at the Carfax report. It’s a document that holds your vehicle’s history. Any accidents, previous sales, maintenance, repairs, etc., will be in the Carfax report. 

When a car is repainted, it appears on the vehicle’s title. This can devalue the vehicle because people want to avoid buying a car that has been repainted.

Using PDR, you’ll maintain the appearance and value of your vehicle by avoiding a paint job. This means you’ll be able to sell your vehicle for more when the time comes. 

Environmentally Friendly

Safe environmental practices are vital in today’s world across all industries. It’s a commitment that we at Canadian Dent take seriously.

By avoiding using chemicals, fillers, solvents, and volatile paints, PDR has a much smaller environmental footprint than traditional bodywork.

That means less toxic waste is involved in repairing your car’s dents. This keeps our environment healthier and safer.

Additionally, avoiding replacing body panels reduces waste by keeping the original sheet metal on the road and out of landfill.
