bottom case dented. can I remove and fix?

I dropped my mac and it slightly dented the front right corner near the cd/dvd slot. Can I remove the bottom case so I can put the dented corner back into position?

There's this iFixit Guide to replacing the bottom case. Depending on exactly where the dent is / how extensive it is, steps 1 -10 or so should help you get your case open so you'll have some access to the bottom of it.

If that's not enough, going to step 43 or so should give you more complete access to the entire corner that you want to fix, it's just a bit more lengthy process to get it very exposed.

Hope this helps! :)

I've checked out the guide you suggested. It's a lot more involved than I thought to do a complete replacement of the case but I think I might be able to handle steps 1-10. It looks like that just might be enough to allow access to the dented corner. Thanks for your help.
