Default [Q] Suggestions to remove scratches from the gorilla glass ?

Hi community
I've seen some posts regarding scratch removal on other devices but decided to post it in the dedicated Moto G forum because I don't think all the devices have the same quality on the screen even if they also have gorilla glass 3.
I have 2 scratches, quite deep, but the rest of the screen is immaculate so I don't know if I would cause more harm or if I can soften the 2 scratches without more damage.
I don't know how it got the scratches but I think it might have been some sand particle or ash.
I tried toothpaste but didn't work, any suggestion ?

The scratches won't be removed, instead you polish the whole surface making the scratch dissapear (I know scratches can't be filled tho).

This guy got pretty decent results:

DONATE TO ME
Try a polish .
Anyway i used to have a Razr Maxx, with gorilla glass 1st generation, 6 months and there was no stratch on it.
So Moto G, with this 3rd gen of Gorilla glass i don't think that i need any screen protector.
But after reading this post, hahaha. Ya maybe i have to think about buying a screen protector. Maybe just maybe

I thought I didn't need one either, unluckily there's some grittle or little sand particles that CAN get near your screen and that actually ARE harder in the scale so they will scratch the glass and you will hardly see them (that's why I don't believe in "dust resistant" phones, because sand contains crystals that are among the hardest materials out there).

However, I still think that a plastic screen protector on a gorilla glass screen is a terrible idea, it reduces transparency, is a soft material so it will get very scratched, it is more difficult to clean and adheres to dust and even can melt with some solvent like materials. Is like reducing the quality of your screen on purpose. I think I'll have to be more careful from now on, thats all, my scratches are yet very subtle (I only see them on white backgrounds) so I don't think I'll take a leap of faith just yet.
Anyways I wanted to get the 4G LTE version with gyroscope or finally a nexus, this might be the perfect excuse.
