    "Depending on size and depth of the dent can either cut out and replace section or if small enough plasterboard patch can be applied similar to scrim tape but smaller mesh cover area fill sand down and repaint wall"

    "I would recommend filling the dent using a two to three coat system of filler using a taping knife or trowel depending on the size of the dent"

    "Hello, you can use some wall filler if it is a small dent and then just sand it down so it is smooth again. If it is a big dent / hole I'd recommend getting a plasterer in to skim over it."

    "Depends how small the dent is. Normal filler would be suitable if it's small enough.
    Clean out the hole with a brush removing loose plaster. Then fill the hole with filler making sure it's slightly proud. Then once dry, sand it down and paint!"

    "If you just fill it in plasterboard it will fall through and crack.if you can get a piece of wood behind the hole and screw to plasterboard and then fill it, the filler will hold in the wall better then you can either skim it or fill it sir"
