I scratch the front corner right bumper ... what to do?

I have a 2007 ML 500. I scratched the front corner right bumper while getting into my garage . Does anybody have suggestions for me? Should I paint it myself or should I bring it to a Mercedes Service Shop?

What color is it? If it's metallic paint you will probably have to strip and paint the whole bumper. If it's non metallic eg. white you could probably get away with blending new paint with existing paint if you use a wax & grease remover prior.
