Question Bumper Repair question

I know this may be a odd ball question but I'm curious about removing "marble" size dent on nearly new front bumper on 87 Ford F150.

What's the best way to remove the dent or make it less visible to naked eye?

I do have body hammer and dolly but I doubt they will do the job since the factory stock steel front bumper is thicker than sheet metal on my truck.

any advise or technique is appreciate.

yeah, probably, but how else are you going to get that metal to move?

maybe not scorch the thing but i think i'd warm it up a bit at least.
