Very small cavities need not to be filled,but usually cavities are very small in size externally,but internally they can be big in size.Better to get an IOPA x-ray of the tooth & final decision can be made then only. N.B cavities are usually dark in colour,white appearance may not be caries

If the cavity is small enough that it can't be restored, only reshaping the tooth to remove the carious part known as enameloplasty is done!!!

The degree of progression of caries needs to be seen before any comment. If it's too small to restore then you can go for enameloplasty etc. Consult a dentist properly.
