damaged bathtub, no option to replace

i just moved into a new apartment, and the gas meter hangs above my tub. this evening i had the gas company come to switch it to a remote read meter.

well, while they were installing it they dropped it. it left me with two pretty large chips on the inside rim of my tub, both are slightly dented.
can anything be done for this? i rent obviously so repairs are my only option and i haven't seen many positive reviews on DIY kits.

and yes, i'm calling the claims department in the morning but i'd like some idea of what to expect since i don't know how much cost they will cover (or how much can really be done in an apartment).

Any professional bath refinisher can easily fix this where it will look 100% as it was before the accident. A DIY'er can do it if you have the right equipment.
