What causes you to get a cavity? Bacteria that live in your mouth thrive on sugars and starches, producing acids as a result. These acids eat away at the enamel on your teeth, creating tiny holes or pores. This eventually weakens the structure of the tooth, often appearing as a chalky white spot on the surface of the tooth. As the process progresses, a cavity is formed that your dentist traditionally treats by drilling and filling the tooth.
