Generally speaking if you can catch the edge of the paint with your finger nail you will need to add paint. If not then it is worth polishing (carefully)

On minor surface scratches, I've used ordinary Colgate toothpaste and the scratches disappear like magic!

That's because it has mild abrasives in it.
I wouldn't recommend it though.
If you're going to attempt to remove the scratch by hand I'd suggest you use Meguiars Ultimate Compound followed by Meguiars Ultimate Polish. Both are available from Halfrauds for around £10 each.
