The bitter partisan fight over Mr Kavanaugh's nomination became a firestorm after sexual misconduct allegations emerged involving Mr Kavanaugh.
Last week, the Federal Bureau of Investigation completed a report on sexual misconduct allegations against Mr Kavanaugh - but the findings have not been released to the public.
On Monday evening Kavanaugh, 53, joined family members, friends and President Trump at the White House for a ceremonial swearing-in ceremony, where the new justice tried to ease the partisan wounds from his confirmation process.
Trump used his introduction of Kavanaugh to slam the judge's opponents.
"On behalf of our nation, I want to apologize to Brett and the entire Kavanaugh family for the bad pain and suffering you have been forced to endure", Mr Trump said at the jurist's White House swearing-in ceremony.
The president said Kavanaugh overcame intense scrutiny by Democrats who considered him guilty and didn't want to give him due process.
House Democrats' lead in the generic congressional ballot has slightly increased in the wake of the bombshell hearing for now-Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, according to a newly released survey from CNN - numbers that conflict with some other recent polling and push back on the narrative that the Kavanaugh hearings were a political win for the GOP.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Sunday praised his party's senators, whom he said re-established the "presumption of innocence" in confirmation hearings. Either way, he added, for Trump to declare that Kavanaugh was proven innocent is a "wild overstatement to say the least, and very likely an inaccurate read of what happened".
Republicans had hoped to confirm Kavanaugh in time for him to join the court on October 1, the start of the new term. He had already hired four law clerks, all women.
Justice Roberts said: "We wish you a long and happy career in our common calling".
"No one who felt the force of that anger could possibly believe that Kavanaugh might actually be a detached and impartial judge". The court's two oldest justices are Democratic appointees: Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 85 and Stephen Breyer is 80.
