You can try kits like Heli-coil for stripped bolt holes or other thread insert kits, or go with a replacement set of heads. Heads are not cheap, so that's up to you.

With the amount of work involved with replacing the heads I would try the heli-coils first, just make sure you follow the directions exactly for a good bond.
