If your car got damaged recently, following a small 'crash' or something of that nature, then you could find yourself drawn to learn more about auto dent repair.
The specific procedures that are involved in car dent repair can be seen as falling into two major categories. The first category is that of the so-called paint-less repairs; with the second being that of the so-called paint restoration repairs. The former, that is, paint-less repairs, usually come in handy where we are looking at minor damage; with the latter (paint restoration repair) coming in handy where the damage is quite extensive.

Of course, where the damage is 'very extensive,' it may be beyond what paint restoration car dent repair can rectify, and the only remedy in such cases that auto dent repair can't handle is usually to (completely) replace the damaged parts. The replacement should be easy for vehicles that are still in production; but for antique cars and other vehicles which have gone out of production, getting the ideal replacement can be a real headache.
The cost of car dent repair, in turn, depends on among other things how huge a dent we are looking at, the kind of vehicle we are looking at (like how 'delicate' it is), and the people you choose to partner with as service providers. Regarding how long the repair should take, the answer is that it can take as little as a day, or as long as a month. Exactly how long the repair takes depends on among other things, how skilled the person undertaking it is, how dedicated to that specific project they are, how bad the damage is...and such other factors which you should be aware of.
It helps for you to undertake some research, and establish baseline cost estimates, before starting to shop for car dent repair services. This is especially the case if you don't want to be fleeced. A good place to start is on the Internet, though you may never get a tangible estimate (quotation) until you get to speak to a professional in the field. Another step you can take to avoid being fleeced when shopping for auto dent repair services is to ask for breakdowns as to how the total figure that is quoted to you is arrived at.
