Repairing a Hollow Core Door

My hollow door has a dent in it caused by an object hitting it. The dent in the wood has left cracks surrounding the dent. I have used heat before for dents made on other wood furniture to smooth the surface, How do I repair this door?

Try wood filler and smooth over the dent. Wait to dry and sand smooth and paint over it. If the door is not a painted door, but of woodgrain, the filler will be obvious. I'm not sure if you can stain over the filler and cover it either. But, you can definitely use it to fill in a place.

Not the same when the wood is hollow. Steam heat (iron) is used for solid wood.

We drilled a hole in the wrong place on our hollow wooden door. How do we fix it?
