Dents in Ceramic Tile Floor

My ceramic tile floor in small studio kitchen has a number of dents. I was advised to fill them in with white porcelain paint, which I did, attempting to create heart shapes
as a pattern. Result is messy. I am not able to replace tiles at this time.

Can I purchase small stick-on patches in a design to cover the dents/chips? Any other suggestions? Thank you.

Welcome to the forums!! I have never seen "dented" ceramic. It either chips out or breaks completely. If you can find matching tile, replacing them would not be all that difficult. We can guide you through it. And, no, sticky patches won't stand up to foot traffic and dirt.

Can you post a photo? As Chandler said ceramic tile doesn't dent but it does chip. You might be able to fill the chips with an epoxy based product or a porcelain repair kit.

Yes, they are chips rather than dents, and they are all covered now with the porcelain filler I awkwardly applied in the shape of hearts. My failed aim was to suggest a pattern as a disguise for filled-in chips. I will have to keep trying to doctor the multiple chips with porcelain filler. Thank you and Chandler for your responses.
