Default Removing scratches from the screen?

I've heard of a banana method from a friend, but are there any other methods? I dont mind buying like a solvent or something.

I've heard tooth paste? Not quite ballsy enough to rub tooth paste on my phone, though.

There's a special screen protector that fills in the scratches so it looks like new. Forgot what it's called though :/

The Zagg does that, but only for scratches on the protector.

Can't you just get a replacement back cover or is it on the camera part itself?

Toothpaste won't work on Gorilla Glass...

I'd replace it.

(Toothpaste will make Gorilla Glass look hazy - after 20 minutes with a power buffer... it's a lost cause)

Toothpaste works on watches, from the old days. Ok, seriously though, the solution advertized that fills scratches on eyeglasses should do the job and would be much less costly. I used it to fill deep scratches in eyeglasses. Never knew they were even there. Can't remember what its called though.
