Bumper repair?

Is ther anyway to repair the front bumper ie: plastic welding or some sort of auto body repair (fill)? I did something really stupid a little while ago and put a nice hole (not all the way through) in my front bumper. It looks repairable if someone knew what they were doing.....any help would be great! Thanks

this is gonna sound goofy but a body shop CAN fill it with epoxy and/or fiberglass and you would never know it was there. Expensive, but effective.

Just like bondo body shops have a flexible filler, to repair that kind of damage.I had my body shop fill my tag holes with it.
