They will not fix cosmetic damage. Moreover, some Applecare employees will try to void your warranty, due to "physical abuse" done to the machine.
How bad is the dent? Where is the dent? Does everything still work ok?
I had a TV fall on my main Powerbook, and it dented the lid, but Applecare didn't even mention it when my harddrive died. It's a tricky system sometimes.
if you're fairly handy, you can probably fix the topcase yourself by purchasing a replacement from some place like ifixit. manuals are available online - the only thing to be careful with is not snapping one of the ribbons when you remove it (aka, be gentle when pulling it off and don't yank it if it doesn't come off right away). the part itself is ~$200 i think
i know this will not fix your dent, but you could get a marware protection kit, it covers the entire area around the track pad. I purchased it because the material on the Ti-book I used to have flaked off after years of use
