If the paint is not broken or there is not a crease, small dents can be removed by the "paintless dent removal" methods. Since there is no painting, it is much, much cheaper than traditional body shop methods.
It also eliminates any worry about paint match. I have found even if the paint match is perfect after a repair, the two different paints age differently and after a few years, they look different., especially metallics.
A friend of mine bought a 89 300E that had about 20 door dings. For about $200 at the "paintless" place, the car looked new. I could not believe it. You might look into it.
