Silvering can not be repaired only re-silvered (not worth it) or replaced. If your mirror is a cloudy, streaky old mirror, the "ding" is part of antique look.

Antique mirror

Accept the 'ding' as part of the character of the old mirror. Resilvering and repairing will lessen the value of the antique considerably.

Mirror repair

I am very sorry about your loss. Perhaps you can find another old mirror that you like at a yard sale or antique shop.
