German term or phrase: muldenförmige Defekte
From a dental PhD thesis:

2693 Zähne mit Schlifffacetten unterschiedlichen Grades
(Grad 0-3), 224 Zähne mit Schlifffacetten unterschiedlichen Grades sowie keilförmigen Defekten, 168 Zähne mit Schlifffacetten unterschiedlichen Grades sowie *muldenförmigen Defekten* und 57 Zähnen mit Schlifffacetten unterschiedlichen Grades sowie zervikalen Restaurationen

Thanks in advance. I can give a translation, but possibly not with the correct terminology. I only know two dentists, and they are a German and a Slovene respectively, so no English speakers.

Explanation:
pothole-shaped lesions
These pothole-shaped lesions are caused by excessive occlusal load.

saucer-shaped lesions
Dentists
reported arresting of these large opened saucer-shaped lesions
I suppose it depends on how large the defects are.

The appearance of the lesions varies from shallow depressions, broad disk-shaped
lesions to large wedge-shaped defects
