Repairing a cork floor

I have a house built in 1953. According to the house plans, the upstairs was not intended to be finished, but somewhere along the line, Walls and floors were added. There is a cork floor in one of the rooms. The movers kicked the top layer off of the floor in the doorway. It appears as if the floor is solid cork underneath a very thin veneer that was meant to give the appearance of a pegged wood floor. The problem is it is beginning to peel at the seams of this veneer. Is there any way I can force the edges down again? It does get attic-type hot in that room in the summer.

I know cork can sometimes be refinished, but I have no idea how deep the cork is.
