Get scratches out of Glass

Is there any way to get scratches out of glass. Some one used a knife or razor blade to scratch the glass my front doors business. The scratches are not to deep. Any suggestions?

You would have to polish them out, which is not easy as glass is very hard.

A glass shop might be the best person to call. You can try ruby powder(?) and a buffing wheel...but they could probably do it better and quicker.

I'm sure your doors are tempered glass...which might complicate things.

If you can feel the scratch with your finger nail, it's too deep even for a glass shop to polish out. If it can be polished, the area will look a bit distorted.
