Abfraction: If you are noticing areas of the tooth structure is missing, it could be caused by clenching or grinding of the teeth. Could also be a chemical erosion of the tooth structure. Have it examined by a dentist.

Hard to say: Without seeing the holes you are referring to, it is hard to determine exactly what you feel is your dental problem. A dentist needs to see these holes and then perform any treatment, if appropriate and necessary or at least explain to you what the holes are.
