Hose Bib Question

I have a hose bib that the treads are a little bent so when I try to put on a hose it does not tighten completely for that reason it leaks at the bottom of the hose. Question, is there a way to fix the tread on the hose bib? Or does it have to be replaced? Really would not like to solder. Thank You for any suggestions.

If it's just peened over at one spot and interfering with the sealing surface, file it off flush with the surface that contacts the sealing washer in the hose.
