Default Dented exhaust tip, what can be done?

I recently dented my exhaust tip and I'd take pictures but it's dark outside so it'll have to wait till tomorrow. I tried to pry it back to a circle but it looks like the metal stretched and theres markings from my wrench when I tried to bend it back right. So from far away it looks fine but it's pretty noticeable upfront. Is there a way to make it perfectly round again.

Using a hammer & dolly, time, and patience. It may sound weird but you can take it to a body shop, it's basically the same as hammering out a dent in a fender. Any skilled shop could do it in under a hour of time. the wrench marks can then be sanded in successively higher grits till your up to 1500 and then buff and polish.
