Here's How To Do It:

If a damaged section is near the edge of a room, it can simply be replaced with a new piece. If this is not possible, a small dent or scratch can be repaired with a laminate repair compound kit, as shown here.

Prep the Compound

Cut off the nozzles on the two-part syringe. Squeeze the repair compound into a tray, where the two elements will mix together.

Fill the Damaged Area With Compound

Use the plastic scraper included in the repair kit to press the repair compound into the damaged area.
