Many furniture stores, and moving companies use a wax crayon type thing to fill and match dents and dings on their items, maybe you can get some from a cleaning supply place, or maybe a furniture repairman can help you.

I've seen furniture experts remove dents from wood furniture with a moist cloth placed over the dent and then an hot laundry iron placed on top of the cloth. The heat and the moisture cause the wood to expand and the wood fibers return to normal (or closer to normal).

I don't know if it would work on a finished floor with a clear coat on it. You could call your local flooring store to see what is recommended and if the wet cloth/iron trick is something worth trying.

Don't know if this youtube video is pertinent to your situation but it might have some useful info:

Wet cloth ht Iran deal works by forcing moisture not the word at that octagon thus raising the spots.. ignite wokr, might not...and might well end up with something worse than that with which you started.

Leave them be, no me else will notice and you'll stop seeing them too after a while. Reminding me that I still haven't removed and replaced that door molding in the kitchen that I shut too short when I replaced hardwood with tile in the kitchen maybe ten years back or so. Yup, just forgot it again. Ron
