What we do

Dental Checkup

Taking care of your teeth isn't just about having a nice smile and pleasant breath. The regular checkups give us the opportunity to examine your oral health and see if there are any problems that need to be treated while they are at their smallest and easier to fix predictably.

Professional dental checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile and should take place at least once every six months for optimal care. We are here to help you get back on track!
At Dr. Khanolkar's Smile Dental Clinic we make every patient feel confident in their smile by offering a wide range of dental care services. At our clinic, the dentist will check the patient’s teeth, gums and jaws for any signs of disease, decay or overall health of your mouth.
  • Brush your teeth every day with fluoride toothpaste (500 ppm)
  • Clean between your teeth every day with floss or another type of between-the-teeth cleaner
  • Always rinse after having food
  • Snack smart - limit sugary snacks
  • Don't smoke or chew tobacco
  • Visit your dentist regularly for check-up

Note: Before planning pregnancy it is advisable to get a dental checkup done and all the necessary treatment completed.

Dental Implants

A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is placed into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge.

Dental implants may be an option for people who have lost a tooth or teeth due to periodontal disease, an injury, or some other reason. Because dental implants are artificial tooth roots, they provide the necessary stimulation your jawbone needs to retain healthy tissue, giving your face a more youthful appearance.

A thorough examination will be conducted prior to the dental implant procedure. A dental implant is a surgical placement of a titanium screw or screws in the jawbone as the foundation for a permanent crown, bridge, dentures and orthodontic appliances. We will examine the teeth and jawbone to assess whether the gums are healthy enough and if the patient has enough bone to properly support an implant. X-rays will be taken to help us develop impressions of the mouth to ensure replacement teeth fit accurately and naturally.

Regularly brushing, flossing and rinsing with antibacterial mouthwash is important for a patient after the procedure to maintain good oral hygiene. If there is any soreness, an over-the-counter pain medication can be taken. In some cases, due to wear and tear the replacement teeth may deteriorate and may need to be replaced. So a dental implant is extremely durable and should last a lifetime, if a patient practices proper oral hygiene and treats the implant with care. It’s advised to keep up to the regular dental checkups at our clinic.

Dental implants can fill in missing teeth for a more attractive appearance and make you proud of your smile again.

Children Dentistry

Your child’s path to exceptional dental health starts here. Regular dental visits are an important element of your child’s oral health.

We believe that teaching children good oral hygiene at an early age empowers them for a lifetime of excellent oral health. We are able to provide comprehensive preventive and therapeutic dental treatment for children. Our nurturing manner puts children at ease, making them actually look forward to visiting the dentist!

As soon as your child’s first tooth appears, it’s time to schedule a dental visit. The IDA recommends that the first dental visit take place within six months after the first tooth appears, but no later than a child’s first birthday. Don’t wait for them to start school or until there's an emergency. This gives us a chance to look for early problems with your child's teeth.

We can also spot issues with tooth eruption or jaw development at stages in which they can be more easily corrected.

At checkups, we enjoy teaching children proper brushing and flossing techniques to use at home so that they will have a healthy foundation of oral health. Establishing good oral care habits early will give your child the best possible chances of keeping his or her teeth for life.

    To make the visit positive:

  • Consider making a morning appointment when children tend to be rested and cooperative.
  • Keep any anxiety or concerns you have to yourself. Children can pick up on your emotions, so emphasize the positive.
  • Never use a dental visit as a punishment or threat.
  • Never bribe your child.
  • Talk with your child about visiting the dentist.

    During this visit, you can expect us to:

  • Inspect for oral injuries, cavities or other problems.
  • Let you know if your child is at risk of developing tooth decay.
  • Clean your child’s teeth and provide tips for daily care.
  • Discuss teething, pacifier use, or finger/thumb sucking habits.
  • Discuss treatment, if needed, and schedule the next check-up.

    Cleaning Your Child’s Teeth

  • Begin cleaning your baby’s mouth during the first few days after birth by wiping the gums with a clean, moist gauze pad or washcloth. As soon as teeth appear, decay can occur. A baby’s front four teeth usually push through the gums at about 6 months of age, although some children don’t have their first tooth until 12 or 14 months.
  • For children younger than 3 years, caregivers should begin brushing children’s teeth as soon as they begin to come into the mouth by using fluoride toothpaste in an amount no more than a smear or the size of a grain of rice. Brush teeth thoroughly twice per day (morning and night) or as directed by a dentist or physician. Supervise children’s brushing to ensure that they use the appropriate amount of toothpaste.
  • For children 3 to 6 years of age, use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. Brush teeth thoroughly twice per day (morning and night) or as directed by a dentist or physician. Supervise children’s brushing and remind them not to swallow the toothpaste.
  • Until you’re comfortable that your child can brush on his or her own, continue to brush your child's teeth twice a day with a child-size toothbrush and a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. When your child has two teeth that touch, you should begin flossing their teeth daily.

Teething is one of the first rituals of life. Although newborns usually have no visible teeth, most baby teeth begin to appear generally about six months after birth. During the first few years of your child’s life, all 20 baby teeth will push through the gums and most children will have their full set of these teeth in place by age 3. A baby’s front four teeth usually erupt or push through the gums at about six months of age, although some children don’t have their first tooth until 12 or 14 months. As their teeth erupt, some babies may become fussy, sleepless and irritable, lose their appetite or drool more than usual. Diarrhea, rashes and a fever are not normal symptoms for a teething baby. If your infant has a fever or diarrhea while teething or continues to be cranky and uncomfortable, call your physician.

Infants and young children may suck on thumbs, other fingers or pacifiers. Pacifiers dipped in sugar, honey, juice or sweetened drinks, can lead to tooth decay. Tooth decay can also begin when cavity-causing bacteria pass from saliva in a mother or caregiver’s mouth to the baby. When the mother or caregiver puts the baby’s feeding spoon in her mouth, or cleans a pacifier in her mouth the bacteria can be passed to the baby.

Root Canal Treatment

When a tooth is beyond repair or dead, a root canal removes the infected pulp from inside the tooth to treat damage and prevent decay from spreading. A root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth and also prevent the infections from spreading to the other teeth.

The term "root canal" comes from cleaning of the canals inside the tooth's root.The common causes affecting the pulp are a cracked tooth, a deep cavity, repeated dental treatment to the tooth or trauma. We place a crown over the tooth for protection from future damage and infections. A root canal prevents further health complications by stopping the bacteria from entering the bloodstream and infecting the body.

    Signs That a Root Canal Is Needed

  • Severe toothache pain upon chewing or application of pressure
  • Prolonged sensitivity/pain to heat or cold temperatures (after the hot or cold has been removed)
  • Discoloration (a darkening) of the tooth
  • Swelling and tenderness in the nearby gums
  • A persistent or a recurring pimple on the gums

We perform a root canal to save a dying tooth by replacing the pulp with filling material, cleaning and disinfecting it and replacing the pulp with filling material, sealing it.

    What to Expect During a Root Canal

  • X-ray– if we suspect you may need a root canal, we will first take X-rays or examine existing X-rays to show where the decay is located.
  • Anesthesia– local anesthesia is administered to the affected tooth. Contrary to popular belief, a root canal is no more painful than a filling.
  • Pulpectomy – an opening is made and the diseased tooth pulp is removed.
  • Filling – the roots that have been opened (to get rid of the diseased pulp) are filled with gutta-percha material and sealed off with cement.
  • Crown - Restoration of the tooth crown structure
Teeth Whitening

Are you embarrassed by your yellowing teeth every time you look into the mirror or look at photos of yourself?

At Dr. Khanolkar's Smile Dental Clinic, we help patients change those yellowing teeth back to their pearly whites. We understand that this can give you confidence in the world, achieve a whiter, brighter smile, with both in-clinic and take home options (Home Bleaching).

We perform a thorough checkup at the clinic to assess the patient’s mouth, including the condition of the enamel. An appropriate method is suggested based on the checkup with the patient and chosen. If enamel is in overall poor condition, the teeth will be too sensitive for teeth whitening procedure.

There are two types of whitening procedures.

In Office Treatment
We first protect the gums with a barrier, then a gel is applied directly to the tooth surface. This product contains some form of hydrogen peroxide. A specialized light activates the gel and allows bleaching to happen faster. It usually takes 30 to 90 minutes. You will need 1 to 3 appointments. How severe your stains are and how white you want your teeth to be helps us decide the number. Different types of stains respond differently to the treatment. Subsequent treatments could be needed to maintain whiteness.

Whitening Trays (Home Bleaching)
After a thorough check up we will take impressions of your upper and lower teeth and will make custom mouthpieces to fit you for more even whitening. At home, you will fill each mouthpiece with a whitening gel that we provide. You will wear the mouthpiece for several hours every day. Many people achieve the amount of whitening they want within a week or two, depending on how severe the stains. However, you may need to wear the mouthpiece for four weeks or longer.

The most common reasons for teeth to get yellow or stained are:

  • Using tobacco
  • Drinking dark-colored liquids such as coffee, cola, tea and red wine
  • Not taking good care of your teeth
  • Certain Medicines

If you avoid these sources of staining, you may not need another whitening treatment for 6 to 12 months. Teeth whitening treatment care is extended through regular brushing with flossing and recommended toothpaste and mouth washes. Regular checkups should be a routine it will help clear the plaque and tartar.

Cosmetic Dentistry

Cosmetic dentistry improves the appearance of yours teeth, gums and/or bite. We primarily focus on improvement of dental aesthetics in colour, position, shape, size, alignment and overall smile appearance.
The art of dentistry, not just the science will help you have that perfect smile on your big day which brings light on your face and boosts up your confidence.

Teeth Whitening
A relatively inexpensive way to brighten your smile, whitening teeth can be accomplished at home or at our clinic. There are many products and methods from which you can choose. Read more about Teeth Whitening.

Composite Bonding
A tooth-colored composite resin attached to the teeth can improve the appearance and strength of chipped teeth. These procedures require very little preparation (drilling) of the tooth. Read more about Teeth Bonding.

Porcelain & Composite Veneers
Designed to substitute for tooth enamel, veneers are hard, thin shells of tooth-colored material that can mask a variety of dental imperfections. Read more about Porcelain Veneers.

Porcelain Crowns
Heavily damaged teeth can be covered with natural-looking porcelain crowns, which replace more natural tooth structure than veneers. Read more about Porcelain Crowns.

Porcelain Bridgework
A missing tooth can be replaced with porcelain bridgework that is attached to the natural teeth on either side of the space.

Dental Implants
Usually made of titanium, an implant is used to replace the root portion of a missing tooth. The implant is fitted with a crown to create a natural-looking replacement for the entire tooth. Read more about Dental Implants.

Inlays & Onlays
In certain cases, fillings can be fabricated from porcelain or composite materials in a dental laboratory to more closely match the color of a tooth. When applied to the inside of the tooth, they are referred to as “inlays.” Attached to the biting surface, they are known as “inlays.”

Tooth-Colored Fillings
Gone are the days when a filling has to be obvious and unsightly. Tooth-colored fillings are barely noticeable. Read more about Tooth Colored Fillings.

Clear Orthodontic Aligners
Many adults, as well as some teenagers, are opting for clear orthodontic aligners, instead of metal braces, to straighten their teeth. Read more about Clear Orthodontic Aligners.

Cosmetic Gum Surgery
Minor surgery can reshape gum tissue to give it a more leveled appearance.

Tooth Contouring & Reshaping
Cosmetic dentists can use a drill or laser to smooth out or reshape teeth.

There are two types of whitening procedures.

We ask you to describe in detail what you like and dislike about your smile, and what you want to change. You can bring photos of how you have looked in the past and wish to look in the future which are helpful to serve as general guidelines. After we get a thorough understanding of where you are starting from and where you want to end up, we can explain your treatment options (including how much it will cost and how long it will take to implement) and plan a course of action.




Smile Makeover

"Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy."
- Thich Nhat Hanh ( Author and Spiritualist)

A smile makeover is a combination of restorative and cosmetic dental procedures which helps in the overall appearance of your smile. We help you create a one-of-a-kind, natural-looking smile that boosts ups your self-confidence and brightens up your day.

A custom smile makeover may include porcelain veneers, teeth whitening, and/or clear braces.

Smile Makeover includes

    What to Expect During a Root Canal

  • Teeth Whitening Treatment
  • Dental Implants
  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Tooth-colored Fillings
  • Inlays and Onlays
  • Teeth Straightening and Alignment

We recommend you aftercare instructions based on the procedure or procedures being performed. In general, it is important that you follow a good home oral health care regimen, including brushing, flossing, and mouthwash to maintain the results of their smile makeover. Proactive dental care will help your smile remain healthy, strong and beautiful.

Laminates & Veneers

Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that is custom made to fit over teeth, providing a natural, attractive look. Chipped, stained, misaligned, worn down, uneven or abnormally spaced teeth can be fixed by this. It is basically your chance to design your own smile, the way you want it to be…

To prepare your teeth for veneers, we will remove about one millimeter of enamel from each tooth's surface, after the tooth is prepared, we would carefully bond and sculpt the composite material onto your teeth.

For ceramic veneers, a mold is taken of the teeth, which is sent to the laboratory for the fabrication of the veneers. This may take several days. If the teeth are too unsightly, a temporary veneer can be placed, at an additional cost. When finally ready, we will bond the product to your teeth with a special cement.

You'll want to treat your new porcelain veneers just as carefully as you do your own teeth. To make sure the mouth is responding well to the veneers a follow-up appointment need to be taken.

For the first few days, you may be more sensitive to hot and cold it’s still a good idea to brush after consuming foods or drinks that stain the teeth, especially coffee, soda, tea, and red wine.

Keep your normal oral hygiene routine, but use fluoride toothpaste, which keeps you free of decay without aggravating the veneers themselves.

Bonding & Restorations

Dental bonding uses tooth-colored resin to improve the appearance of the teeth by filling in chips and cracks and improving the shape of the teeth.

Dental Bonding is the easiest and least expensive cosmetic dental procedure. The composite resin used in bonding can be shaped and polished to match the surrounding teeth. Most often, bonding is used for cosmetic purposes to improve the appearance of a discolored or chipped tooth.

A dental restoration or dental filling is a dental restorative material used to restore the function, integrity and morphology of missing tooth structure. The structural loss typically results from caries or external trauma.


We will consult a shade guide to select the composite resin that will most closely match the color of your tooth.
Then, we will prepare the tooth by slightly etching the surface and will coat it in a conditioning liquid to help the bonding material adhere.
Next, we will apply the tooth colored resin and mold the tooth until it is the proper shape, ensuring that it is smooth. Then, using an ultraviolet light, the resin is hardened.
After the bonding material hardens, we will further trim and shape it, and polish the material until it matches the sheen of the rest of the tooth surface.


Direct Restoration
This technique involves placing a soft or malleable filling into the prepared tooth and building up the tooth before the material sets hard. The advantage of direct restorations is that they usually set quickly and can be placed in a single procedure.

Indirect Restoration
In this technique the restoration is fabricated outside of the mouth using the dental impressions of the prepared tooth. Common indirect restorations include inlays and onlays, crowns, bridges, and veneers. Removable dental prostheses

Tea, coffee, cigarette smoke and other substances can stain the resin used in bonding. To prevent or minimize stains, avoid eating or drinking these types of foods and drinks during the first 48 hours after any composite procedure. In addition, brush your teeth often and have them cleaned every six months.

Crowns & Bridges

A dental crown is a tooth-shaped "cap" that is placed over a tooth -- to cover the tooth that is broken, cracked, or decayed to restore its shape and size, strength, and improve its appearance.

A dental bridge uses a false tooth that is attached to one or more crowns on either side to securely replace a missing tooth or gap in the smile.

Bridges and crowns are fixed prosthetic devices that are cemented onto existing teeth or implants by a dentist. Crowns are used most commonly to entirely cover or "cap" a damaged tooth or cover an implant. Bridges are commonly used to cover a space if you’re missing one or more teeth. They are cemented to natural teeth or implants surrounding the space where the tooth once stood.

  • Traditional bridges: a false tooth surrounded on each side by a crown (abutment teeth).
  • Cantilever bridges: a false tooth surrounded on one side by 1 or more crowns.
  • Maryland or resin-bonded bridge: a false tooth supported by wings or framework that is bonded to the natural teeth.

How do Crowns Work?
We use porcelain or ceramic crowns that can be uniquely matched to the color of your natural teeth.Porcelain bonded to a metal shell is often used because it is both strong and attractive. To maintain a fully white smile, we recommend all-ceramic crowns.

We recommend a crown to:

  • Replace a large filling when there isn't enough tooth remaining
  • Protect a weak tooth from fracturing
  • Restore a fractured tooth
  • Attach a bridge
  • Cover a dental implant
  • Cover a discolored or poorly shaped tooth
  • Cover a tooth that has had root canal treatment

How do Bridges Work?
Bridges are commonly used to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges are cemented to the natural teeth or implants surrounding the empty space.
During the first appointment, we will begin to remove the enamel structure of the abutment teeth to prepare the teeth for a crown. Then impressions of your teeth will be taken and the dental bridge, crowns and pontic will be created by our dental laboratory. While the permanent bridge is being created, we place a temporary bridge for your tooth's protection.
At the second appointment, the temporary bridge will be replaced with the new permanent bridge that will be placed onto the area and checked for proper fit, but you may need to take more than one visit in a few weeks to have the fit and bite re-checked so that the bridge fits securely in your mouth.

By brushing twice a day, flossing, and using an antiseptic mouthwash daily you can keep their bridges, crowns and natural teeth healthy from bacterial growth. For the best results see us at least two times each year for cleanings and a preventive exam.

Full-Mouth Rehabilitation

It is the process of rebuilding or simultaneously restoring all of the teeth in both the upper and lower jaws.If you suffer from extensive decay, tooth damage, and diseased soft tissues bruxism, severe loss of tooth structure, we can help relieve your pain and restore your confidence with a healthy smile.

We evaluate by asking you about your problems, including any pain or difficulty with oral functioning you are experiencing. The evaluation includes probing your teeth and gums with a dental instrument and taking digital X-rays.
We will then plan to repair the damage and help you achieve good oral health. For tooth decay or damage, we may offer you fillings, inlays, onlays, or crowns.
We will treat gum disease with scaling and root planing, antibiotic therapy, or laser surgery. Missing teeth can be replaced with a number of options, including fixed bridges, partial or full dentures, or dental implant restorations.

Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that specializes in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities.

Irregular protruded teeth, jaw discrepancies, cleft lip and palate, weak gums and bone conditions requiring orthodontic correction. Missing teeth requiring orthodontic correction before replacement of teeth. Severe jaw problems needing orthodontic treatment combined with surgery.

Types of Braces

Metal Braces
Conventional metal braces are most common and still widely used braces treatment. They give the same result when compared to other types of braces but the only disadvantage is that they are unaesthetic.

Clear | Ceramic Braces
Clear braces makes wearing braces less noticeable and hence, look aesthetic. they can be combined with vibrant colored elastic giving you a fancy look. These are braces which commonly people prefer.

Lingual | Invisible Braces
Lingual braces are attached to the inside or lingual side of the teeth which makes them completely invisible. Lingual orthodontics particularly well-suited for adults whose profession keeps them in the public eyes such as actors, models, air hostess, front end operators, etc.

We’ll take photographic images, impressions and digital x-rays of your teeth and jaw. With this information, we work to develop a treatment plan that addresses your specific orthodontic needs. This treatment plan guides the development of your braces.

Dentures & Partial Dentures

Missing teeth cause a host of problems, from difficulty speaking and eating to low self-confidence to jawbone deterioration. Don't give up on your smile. Replacing missing teeth will help to improve your appearance and smile. Without support from the denture, facial muscles sag, making a person look older. Dentures can help you eat and speak more comfortably. Advances in dental materials and technology have made full and partial dentures more lifelike and comfortable than ever.

What is a Partial Denture?
A partial denture, commonly referred to as simply a partial, consists of multiple teeth on a gum colored base. The teeth are not in a row, but rather spread across the base to fit like a puzzle with your existing teeth. A partial is normally secured with clips or brackets, but unlike a bridge, a partial is removable.

What is a Denture?
A full denture is a complete top or bottom row of teeth mounted on a gum-colored base. Dentures can be closed or open palate, and they require denture adhesive to hold them in place.

Implant-Supported Dentures and Partials
Dental implants are small titanium posts anchored into the jawbone. If you prefer a secure full or partial denture and do not want clips or adhesive, then consider implant-supported dentures. In a brief surgery, an implant dentist can secure a few dental implant posts to hold your dentures in place. With implant-supported dentures, you won't have to worry about slippage, and your prosthesis will feel safe and sound.

Teeth Cleaning & Gum Surgeries

Routine dental cleanings twice a year are an integral part of maintaining healthy teeth and gums that give you a beautiful smile for a lifetime.

Professional dental cleanings are a very important part of maintaining optimal dental health. Teeth cleanings help to remove tartar and decay from the teeth as prevention against infection, cavities, and tooth decay. This hard substance, which is formed by plaque left behind after insufficient cleaning, can cause your gums to pull away from your teeth and form pockets. If gum disease is not treated, it will advance to a point in which the gum tissue and jawbone begin to deteriorate, which can lead to tooth loss.

At Dr. Khanolkar's Smile Dental Clinic dental cleanings start with an examination of the patient’s teeth. We look for any signs of damage, cavities or decay. Scaling and root planing are the most common measures used to treat early stages of gum disease. Scaling consists of removing tartar from the tooth root below the gum line, and root planing is a procedure that smoothes out the root surface so that oral bacteria are less likely to collect there.
Your teeth are cleaned to remove any plaque and tartar buildup, followed by a deep clean and polish with professional dental tools.

For Advanced gum diseases, we also perform Flap surgical procedures (Gum Surgery)

You should maintain optimal oral hygiene using the recommendations provided by us during the treatment.You should brush your teeth twice a day, use mouthwash, and floss. If given special instructions or items to use, such as specific mouthwash or toothpaste, you should follow the directions given and schedule an appointment for follow-up.

Surgical Extractions

Surgical Extractions are a bit complex procedure, which are used if a tooth may have broken off at the gum line or has not erupted in the mouth.

We will employ every treatment method possible to help you keep your natural teeth for life. Rest assured that we will extract your tooth gently and precisely, making sure you are comfortable every step of the way.

Teeth are extracted for a variety of reasons:

  • Decay has reached deep into the tooth
  • Infection has destroyed a large portion of the tooth or surrounding bone
  • There is not enough room for all the teeth in your mouth

Dr. Sharvil will begin by administering a local anesthetic to the area surrounding the tooth. We will make a small incision into your gum to surgically remove the broken tooth or impacted wisdom tooth. Once the extraction site has healed, the most appropriate tooth replacement options will be offered to help restore your ability to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.

We will ask you to bite down gently on a piece of dry, sterile gauze, which you must keep in place for up to 30 to 45 minutes to limit bleeding while clotting takes place. This clot is vital to your healing process, and if it is disturbed, you may develop a painful condition called dry socket. For the next 24 hours, you shouldn't smoke, rinse your mouth vigorously, or clean the teeth next to the extraction site. After 24 hours have passed, you may rinse your mouth with salt water and resume your normal oral hygiene routine, but you must avoid brushing the extraction area until it has healed.

A certain amount of pain and discomfort is to be expected following an extraction. In some cases, we may recommend a pain killer or prescribe one for you. It may help to apply an ice pack to the face for 15 minutes at a time. You may also want to limit strenuous activity, as well as avoid hot liquids and not drink through a straw. Under normal circumstances, discomfort should lessen within three days to two weeks. If you have prolonged or severe pain, swelling, bleeding or fever, do contact us immediately.

Sedation Dentistry

In certain cases where the procedure cannot be performed under local anesthesia for patients who are anxious and fearful of dental treatment, pediatric patients, special cases etc. we perform all procedures under general anesthesia.
