I had an MBP that was dropped and left a nice crease on the top and cracked the display. The guy who replaced display also hammered out most of the crease.
Nope, you can't really fix it to like new again. Dents happen a lot using aluminum. Which is why I never understood the obsession with it. It's far from the ideal material. Plastic phones can be made well and do not dent at all.
I would think the risk of further damage in trying to bend it back, is rather high. If its not really usable right now, what are you looking at? Will you be buying a new laptop now because its not working? If that's the case, the computer is not something that is fitting a need right now, so while you may risk damaging it further, you may make it more functional.
tldr; The reward may out weigh the risk.
Your only option is to try and carefully bend it back aluminium is brittle it may crack or snap but if it's making it unusable it is probably worth a try.
Yeah u may cause more damage by trying to bend it back.
If it's the top case, where the palm rest is, you can get this part used on eBay for as little as $30-$40.
