Default Valance/Bumper Scrapes

Hey everyone, so I have some scrapes on my front bumper valance on the drivers side. I got it this winter, at school when I hit a bit of ice, and scraped up against a light pole cement base.

My question is: Can I fix it WITHOUT replacing the valance, or would it be better just to replace the valance? Check out the pics.

Yeah, I think I did it in High School, but that was almost 13 years ago haha.
