There's a simple solution. E-bay has vendors that sell the stickers, and you just put the new sticker over the old button.
It happened to my car too and if you are patient with the application, it looks perfect.

Yes they just pop out. Use something like a credit card to wedge them out. Took me seconds for each button.
