PDR stands for Paintless Dent Repair, also known as Paintless Dent Removal. It is part of Dentology, a branch of auto body repairs that handles the elimination of minor pressure blemishes to metal. This technique requires a qualified, experienced technician to manipulate certain locations of the metal to the right height in order to be able to either push or pull out minor dents or dings. In layman terms, paintless dent removal is the repairing of minor vehicle body damage without the use of body filler and without having to repaint. Therefore, the technique is not only faster (usually taking between 2 and 3 days), but also more affordable. The location of the damage, the size, and the damage extent are all factors that determine the feasibility of PDR as a repair method.
Like any other process in auto body repair services, PDR starts with a thorough assessment of your vehicle. It is important to locate all dents, dings or creases on your car and determine which ones can actually be fixed through this method. It is also critical to establish from the beginning the extent of the damage as some dents or creases, small as they may be, cannot be repaired with PDR if they are too sharp or if the paint has been stretched too much. Once the damage has been assessed and PDR approved, technicians will work on pushing or pulling out the dents from the metal panels, so that no filler or painting would be necessary. The process can take anywhere between 2 and 3 days and it is certainly a more affordable option than traditional repainting.
