Pinhole® Rejuvenation Gum Lift

The Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique (PST®), also known as Pinhole Gum RejuvenationTM was invented and patented by Dr John Chao.

Dr Sheng Zhang was personally trained by Dr Chao at the Pinhole Academy in California, USA.

The Pinhole® Surgical Technique is revolutionary in that it is scalpel-free, suture-free, graft-free, minimally invasive procedure for correcting gum recession and saving teeth.

The procedure is performed by making a small hole with a needle in the gum tissue. Using specially designed instruments, the gum tissue is gently loosened and guided over the receded part of the tooth. Since there are no incisions or sutures, patients can expect minimal post-operative symptoms (pain, swelling and bleeding). Most patients can resume light normal activities within 24-48 hours after treatment. The instant cosmetic improvement leaves most patients very pleasantly surprised.


If you have concerns about your receding gums, why not book a consultation with Dr Sheng to assess your suitability for The Pinhole® Surgical Technique. At the appointment Dr Sheng will assess and photograph your teeth and gums to discuss how the procedure would benefit you. You will also be shown a portfolio of his clinical cases so you can determine if this treatment is right for you.
