You should try to burnish them, pressing metal back into itself, if that makes sense to you. That might help a little, or quite a lot, but you'll still need to get rid of any gouges with whatever it takes: burnishing, filing, sanding, steel wooling. Otherwise if a string binds against a defect in a fret, string bending will quickly cause that area of the fret to wear down.

Even with double taping the frets to protect them I have occastional frets getting the wrong end of the contour sander. It's just a matter of polishing down the whole board at that point which usually takes care of any imperfections you do to the exsisting frets.
