The labels certainly help protect the CDs since the most critical surface is the label side, if that gets even slightly damaged then the CD is a nothing more than a drink coaster. The other (non-label) side can take a certain amount of damage. If attempting to repair scratches work between the centre and edge of the CD, don't follow the tracks around.

Best thing to do with a scuffed CD is stroll off down to the local Video/DVD rental outlet. It's odds-on they'll have a polishing machine, and will be able to renovate it for you for a small fee. You can get small portable machines to polish them quite cheaply, but they don't do anywhere near as good a job as a professional one.

I recently purchased one of those do-it-yourself machines and it seemed to be adding scratches rather then removing them, so I put in a CD without any scratches and sure enough, it came out with scratches! Nothing deep enough to hurt anything, but kinda useless just the same. You should try to find a professional service rather then waste money on one of those machines.
