Default bend in rear bumper

I recently purchased a 2015 Mazda 3. I plan on keeping it for as long as it will last me, so I've been trying to fix all the flaws and imperfections it came with since I bought it used. Something that has been bothering me for sometime now is the rear bumper, I obviously didn't notice it the day I signed the papers but there is a slight bent on the bottom right side that caves in. You notice it most when you are standing (or driving) right behind it. To most people, it's not noticeable, but to me it is. I was wondering if this is something that can be repaired? I've been reading several forums and I can't really find anything similar to my situation. Most people would say just replace the bumper, but I don't want to risk having the paint not match exactly (I have Titanium Flash Mica). I don't see replacing the whole bumper is necessary, especially since there is no dents or scratches, so I would basically just be throwing away money. But, if I do end up replacing the bumper, I want to look into seeing if the 2017 rear bumper would fit on my 2015.

My questions are, what do you think? Can it be repaired? Does anyone know if the 2017 rear bumper would fit?



currently out of town so this was the best photo I could find.
