What can I repair and refresh the look of these exterior bricks?


My house is over 100 years old and I want to improve the look of the dirty and deteriorating brick porch. There doesn't seem to be a problem with the mortar at least, just the old bricks themselves are flaking. I want to clean it and considered low/medium pressure cleaning but Im afraid to damage the bricks further. Does anyone have any suggestions for how to fill the chips and holes in the bricks or somehow repair the look of the brick? Or should I just masonry paint over the whole thing? Appreciated
