Touching up scratches in aluminum-oxide coated wood floor

I recently installed new engineered hardwood floors, and these floors have a layer of aluminum-oxide coating that gives them a matte, almost plastic-like finish. Very typical for engineered wood flooring from what I understand. So we managed to put some scratches into them, and the scratch is just in the coating and it looks like a white mark. Does anyone know the best way to get these out while preserving the matte finish? Thanks for the help!

The issue with aluminum oxide is that it is almost so hard that it scratches easily. You may be able to recoat the entire floor. You would need to first treat the floor with Bona Prep so that a new coating will bond. Here is a how to guideI posted on here awhile back.
