Enameloplasty Contraindications

The clinical contraindications for enameloplasty include decalcified enamel, the presence of minimal enamel so that enameloplasty would result in exposure of the dentin, and in patients who exhibit hypersensitivity. I would also not do enameloplasty, unless absolutely needed, on patients with a high caries incidence. All that said, your professor may be looking for a purely academic answer which may be quite different from the answer a clinical dentist would be looking for.
