Dents in rim

I have a question about a few small dents I have in my rear rim. Should I attempt to bend them out or just leave them? They are about half a cm from the outside in and only go towards the center a few mm. So far I haven't had any problems so I thought I'd just leave it for now, is this a good idea?

Pictures wouldn't help at all, to get a high enough quality picture to see them, it would be too big, they are hard to even see with your eyes when you are 5 inchec away due to the rims being a flat black.

I know what you mean, this happened on my old bike. I tried to bend them out but that just made it worse. Leave it as it is, when the rim is 100% noticably bent, then try to bend it (in otherwords, when the rim is completly warped)
