I’d certainly try replacing them with shorter screws. If the holes can’t be HEALED, then you may be adding a new ‘feature’ on the other side. Oh, and for that softer material, soak the material with CA glue to harden it up a bit after removing the long screw & healing the holes, but before installing the shorter screws.

Hey, little butterfly inlays might look right nice on that top.
