Chips on the edges of iPad. How to repair without replacing case

My iPad that took a tumble and there is some slight damage on the edges on three corners (not effecting the performance at all). Is there a way I can use Plastic Epoxy or another adhesive to repair without causing any damage to the device. I am only looking at a cosmetic solution.

The best solution is to get a case to cover the blemishes.

Sorry to say any 'Filler' will make things look worse here and won't stick.

If you have a sharp edge you could try using a burnishing tool to smooth it down the aluminum case as for the glass cover a fine diamond file for smoothing out glass could be used (just in the corners away from the touch surface areas and the sides nearest the touch surface zone). Otherwise leave it alone.
