I would say: do it!!!!! If you do not like the effect, you always can remove it. But you would never know if you don't try.
I have similar dilemma. A dent on the front door. I will cover it, somehow, and I think that EVERYTHING will look better than the dent.

When we first got married, we had an olive green fridge...and I hated the color. So, we ended up painting it black. I can't say that it was gorgeous, but I can say that the color stayed on and it served us well even after a couple of moves across several states. I'm glad that we made the choice to paint it, so that's an option for you to consider.

I've heard of appliance paint. You might also look into powder coating. We got a slightly dinged refrigerator. We didn't do anything to it. Most of the dings are on the sides, and aren't visible. It usually has so many papers stuck on it with magnets, you'd never see the dings.

I've seen a fridge that was "cased" with poplar 1x and painted with chalkboard paint. I thought it was clever and great for a house with kids. It depends on whether your kitchen can tolerate a big, black box.

Many years ago when I was young and poor, I bought a fridge that was dented on the sides. I then bought enough cork squares (12"x12") to cover the fridge sides completely and adhered them with heavy-duty double-faced tape. Voila -- the dents were covered and I had some attractive memo boards too.

For those who have a dent in the front door, here's an idea. I had enlargements made of some of my favorite photos and then had them laminated and adhered them to my fridge door with special tape. There are no dents in my fridge door but, if there were, the photos would cover them.
