Front bumper not lining up
 
Hey all, new to the site and needed some help if it's out there. My fiancee and I were in a parking lot in our 2012 focus hatchback. We pulled a little too far forward in a space and the front went over a concrete divider, heard a scrape, pulled back, and heard a louder scrape. The plastic beneath the car is a little scuffed but the bigger problem is that where the plastic body color portion meets the black lower portion of the bumper on the right(passenger) side of the car, that black lower portion sticks out about 1/8 of an inch so it looks like there's a bit of an underbite on that side I guess. It seems like it just has to pop back in but we can't seem to get that to happen. Looking under the car at the black plastic it looks like one of the plastic plugs is missing on that side. Could replacing that plug be all we need to do?
And how much would something like this cost to get repaired at a shop? It's not like it would take them more than 15 minutes and they probably wouldn't even need a special part.

Can get some pics if anyone thinks they can help.

Pics always help...

Replacing the "missing plug" may pull things back into place.
Local parts store usually has a variety of those push-in plastic ones for a couple bucks.

That pic was terrible. But as a follow-up we went to a local dealer, they popped it back into place in about 5 seconds. No charge.
