Can scratches be buffed out of a windshield?

A scratched windshield may be repaired by an auto glass repair professional. Determining the extent of the scratch is the first thing a repair shop will do. As a general rule of thumb, if the scratch is superficial it can be cleaned or buffed out.

If you run your finger over the scratch and your finger stops or gets stuck over the scratch, the scratch is too deep to puff out. It has to be filled in in this situation, the same way a crack or dent from a rock will have to be filled in.
