The type of cavity you are referring to is known as a Class 2 cavity. If treated early, it can be filled up with a tooth coloured cement, solving the problem once and for all. If untreated or delayed, the tooth might require a root canal and a crown. Since you aren't having continuous pain, most likely it can be treated with a filling.
Teeth are primarily meant to chew. Are you eating comfortably is important. We should not wait till we get pain. Cavities when present superficially can be filled. If they get deep it has to be Root canal treated and capped. So it's recommended to get thoroughly checked and treated promptly at the earliest.
