    A photo would help. Not seeing the damage you should be able to glue everything back together with wood glue.

    if the top is lifted from the base try placing a sheet on it topped with a book and use a mallet to see if you can get the top to go back into place. If it does but is loose you an use a small L bracket inside to keep the pieces joined. As for the bottom edge that got damaged it might be hard to repair it if the wood is chipped or split. A cosmetic fix might be to use one of the wood stain markers on it to make any chipped areas blend in until you determine if you're going to refinish/paint it.

    I would nuse wood filler to fill in any dings. Let it dry. Use a matching marker or shoe polish or buy one of those floor repair filler tubes to match. Then buff the spot to blend it in.
