Its a very simple and routine treatment procedure.
Small cavities can be easily filled by silver filling, white filling(GiC), or Laser filling (composite) depending on the preference and affordability.
If your cavities are not deep then it can be restored. Get it restored as soon as possible so that it will not spread in the inner most pulp of tooth.
Tooth can be restored with materials having similar properties like tooth. You can go for teeth color fillings, laser fillings, fluoride releasing cements etc.
For exact treatment suggestions, we need some more investigations including clinical examination and some Xray if needed. Consult nearby dentist.
If they are initial cavities that means small in size without pain then you can go for tooth colored fillings ( laser fillings) , fluoride releasing fillings are also available. .

Hi,there are many ways to treat small cavities through different types of fillings,first is to know whether those cavities are painless or having pain which u have not mentioned in the question asked. Depending on that you can go for further treatment. Please consult nearby dentist for further procedure.
Before discussing, I am taking the description of your cavity as asymptomatic (pain less). Well In This situation you can get it cleaned and filled after preparation of tooth for various types of filling or cements. Which may include tooth coloured filling or Anti cavity fillings, fluoride relishing and many more. It would be best to get tooth cavity treated at earliest before it start to set-in it effect on nerves below.
