Can you get a dent out of plastic?
Use boiling water. If the dent is on the plastic bumper (or another area of your car made of plastic), applying boiling water to the blemished area should take the dent right out. Boil a pot of water and pour it on the area with the dent, and then reach behind the bumper and push until the dent pops out.
How do body shops fix dents?

Do dent pullers really work?
Dent pullers only work on shallow dents on flat, flexible surfaces. They can improve the appearance of dents but probably won’t create a perfect finish. But these tools will not work on deep, angular dents or damage along the edges of bodywork.
