Default Remanufactured 5.56 with dented cases

Is it common for remanufactured ammo to have dented cases some with creases that are slight. Does it alter the chamber capacity enough to increase pressure on ignition?

yes it's common. no it won't hurt. the dents and creases will iron out when the round is fired.
