What is Paintless Dent Removal?
Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) is a technique used in auto body shops that repairs dents without the use of paint and fillers. PDR is a simple process that does not require drilling holes, grinding, or repainting your vehicle. The process involves massaging the dent out until it is no longer visible.
Cannon Collision uses special tools to massage the surface of the dent. Our trained technicians can remove dents without having to repaint the area.
When Should You Use PDR?
Paintless Dent Removal can be used if the dent isn’t too deep and the paint isn’t cracked. It is a viable and more affordable solution than bodywork and is also much faster than other kinds of auto repairs.
PDR is a four-step process that includes:
- Evaluating the damage of the dented area
- Gaining efficient access to the dent(s)
- Overlooking the assessed damage
- Using highly specialized tools to massage the metal into its original position using the PDR technique
It’s important to know that the PDR process will leave no marks or damage to the painted finish.

The Importance of Fixing Car Dents As Soon As Possible
Car dents during the winter are especially troublesome. It is easier to dent your car by getting into fender benders from the slippery roads.
During the winter time, icy conditions can be more damaging, especially in Long Island, New York. New York uses a lot of salt on roads to deal with winter ice and snow. Salt is an effective safety precaution for limiting the slippery icy roads, but it also corrodes paint. For this reason, you should get your dents fixed as soon as possible. This will prevent any more damage to your vehicle and the damaged area.
If you have a dent in your car that needs to be repaired, call Cannon Collision today and we will perform our cost effective and time saving PDR process.

Is Your Car Eligible For PDR?
Cannon Collision works on all makes and models of vehicles. However, paintless dent repair will only work on shallow dents. The car must also have a flexible paint finish.
If your vehicle contains cracked paint or dents near the panel edge, then it will not qualify for PDR. Unfortunately, paintless dent repair can only repair minor dings, hail damage, and creases.
If your dent is past the eligibility for PDR, have no fear! Our talented technicians at Cannon Collision can do any kind of auto body repair.
