Default Dent in gasket mating surface

My lad's D has acquired a slight ding in the top surface of the cylinder. It's very slight, probably only 0.25mm deep but is close to the edge of the bore although not quite right on the edge. Short of skimming the surface is there any other method of filling the dent? Liquid gasket or something?

Thanks

If the piston passes over it without any problems I wouldn't worry about it.
Jjust re read what you wrote, is it in the bore or where the gasket sits, again I wouldn't worry about it, when I put on a new gasket I smear grease on both sides of the gasket and nothing else.

It's where the gasket sits but quite close (within 1mm or so) of the bore.

As I said I wouldn't worry about it.

Default Slight dings

Have got away with re-fitting rather pitted or scored surfaces using a thin smear of anaerobic liquid gasket maker, (Loctite etc) Hardens quickly when assembled and air is excluded. Not cheap to buy, but you may be able to borrow just a small dab of it. Works for me.
