Customer Question

Cavities or discoloration?
For a few years now, I've had perfectly circular, quite small holes in my molars that appear black in color. They have not changed and I've been to the dentist many times without either me or them mentioning it. Ever since I was little I've had porus teeth, but are these holes cavaties or just regular holes that appeared when my sealance wore off a few years ago?
