Restoring Nambé aluminum alloy with a Dremel—where do I start?

I want to polish/restore some Nambé pieces I have (candlesticks or a plate) with a Dremel to remove scratches and dents and bring back a shiny, smooth finish. The internet says Nambé is an aluminum-based alloy. Dremel shows accessories for cleaning and polishing and sanding. Which should I try, and in what order? Do I need to use a compound or paste, too? I'm looking for guidance and any tips/tricks. Would something other than a Dremel work better? (I’m willing to risk a mess here. Worst case, I’ll just pay Nambé to repolish them.)
