Now are you talking scratches on glass lenses? or on plastic ones? Some of the newer headlight units are being replaced from a recall that causes them to scratch/crack.

There's a process of fine sanding that's done on plastic, then can either be wet sanded, or sprayed with specail spray then cured with uv lamp.

I seem to recall you can do this with some sort of dentists equipment. Can't for the life of me remember what it is though.

Honestly a little light grit polish and clear coat will do the same thing. Remember to clear coat over it after you work on your headlights or the plastic will tarnish.
