Ok, somehow for some unknown reason, i have a ton of tiny dents in the back of my guitar, and they are really annoying me cuz i have no idea how they got there...
i was looking up how to fix dents and i came across this:

"Another thing that you can do is “sweat” out the dent. Here are the steps you’ll need to follow:

1. Clean out any finish from the inside of the ding
2. Grab a soldering iron and heat it up
3. Dampen a clean soft towel thoroughly with water
4. Place the damp cloth over the ding, then apply the soldering iron
5. The steam will cause the wood on your guitar to swell and help take out the dent
6. After this process is completed, you can restain and lacquer the repaired area"
from http://www.fourpoundbrain.com/how-to-fix-dents-in-guitars/

tell me, will this work? since my guitar has a solid finish, it will appear just like new right?

well you if you don't use the exact same stain color or finish... its going to look weird unless you redo the entire guitar...

and two, if you heat up the wood, and it expands, wouldn't it just swell back down after it cools off? I dunno i would feel iffy about this... personally i don't care about scratches and dents I think it gives a guitar character, who cares as long as it plays like it should

Unless it's a very valuable guitar worth mucho bucko, why fix it. If you continue playing on it which you should, it will get more, especially a poly finish. Liten to your guitar. She's saying, "Ravage me, Have your way with me...I'm not furniture!"

If it's a valuable guitar, that's reason enough to not make it your first attempt at removing dents. I've never ironed a guitar, but I make furniture and it does work on that. On the back though, I'd leave it be.
