The dealership? Probably not, they'd more likely refer you to a bodyshop; but that's just my experience with the dealerships around here. I dented my rear bumper where it pushed in quite a fair bit, so i just took it completely off and kicked out the dent from the inside, and then heated it and smooth the edges. After that, I painted it with the touch up paint, and it looks good.

i also hate the ding on my car. some idiot opened his door too far and hit my car. how do i know? it left a white color because the car that parked to me was white. last time i checked, i was about a mile away from him. when i came back from my last class to go home, the car was gone. havnt seen that car ever since.
Some dealerships have in-house ding-repair guys who come out two or more days a week. Usually they're somewhat pricey, but do exellent work.
If it's just a chip, you have two options:
Put some touch-up paint on it with a toothpick, then each time you wash the car rub that one spot with a 'scratch remover' or polishing compound
Or, every time you wax your car use a 'color wax.' Turtlewax makes one, and it actually works great on my Silver Streak Mica, which is a freaking hard color to match. Since you have a silver car too, it should work fine.
Only problem with the wax is, it's not permanent, and wears off. It is less noticable than touch-up paint, though.
