Armstrong Ceiling Tile 'touch up'


I have a suspended Armstrong Ceiling and some of my tile are 'scratched/scruffed'. Someone said instead of replacing, which I don't want to do, they said to touch them up with something white like white out or something like that. My question is what is the best thing to use to touch them up that wouldn't be so noticeable?

I install those ceilings for a living and we use white bathroom caulk to fix chips and scuffs in the tiles we install. Its the Dap brand in the squeezable tubes with a red label. How old are the tiles? If they are newer the caulks color will kinda change just like the ceilings tile color changes with age.
