Why Do Some People Have Cheek Dimples

Why Do Some People Have Cheek Dimples?

Cheek dimple is one of the most common facial features among humans. There are many theories about why some people have cheek dimples while others don’t. Some say it’s because they were born with them, but there are other reasons too such as: genetics, diet, exercise or even smoking cigarettes!

The first thing to understand is that cheek dimples are not just for women. Men can have them too.

The reason behind their occurrence varies from person to person. They’re usually caused due to genetics and environment. However, there are studies which show that if you smoke, your chances of having them increase significantly!

So what does all this mean?

Well, it means that you might want to think twice before lighting up a cigarette…or any other type of tobacco product!

What Causes Cheek Dimples?

There are several things that could cause cheek dimples. These include: genetics, diet, exercise and smoking. Genetics is the term used when it comes to how your genes affect your appearance. For example, if you have red hair then you’ll probably develop red cheeks naturally since they’re inherited from both parents. Diet refers to the foods you eat and exercises refer to anything else that affects your health like exercising regularly or taking vitamins or supplements.

When it comes to the types of dimples, there are in fact 4 different types. The first one is called a congential dimple.

Congenital means “existing at birth”, so this type simply means you were born with them. This type isn’t caused by anything and is just a part of your natural appearance. Some people are just naturally born with dimples and those that aren’t can have cosmetic dentistry performed to give the appearance of them. The second type is known as an induced dimple.

This occurs when your cheek develops a crease that ends up looking like a dimple. It can occur naturally or be caused by excessive smiling, which would mean you’ve been smiling so much that your cheek has created a crease.

You can also get this type of dimple surgically with cosmetic dentistry if you don’t have them naturally. The third type is a traumatic dimple.

This occurs when your cheek gets a big enough impact that it causes a dent. This can happen in a car crash, or if you fall off a bike or get hit hard enough in the face.

These ones aren’t usually permanent and go away over time. The last type is known as an incidental dimple. This type of dimple is caused by something that isn’t related to your appearance and isn’t anything you were born with. It can be caused by something like a stroke, infection or even an allergic reaction.

What Do Dimples on Your Cheeks Mean?

What do dimples on your cheeks mean?

They mean that you’re lucky! Or at least that’s what people will think. Dimples are thought to signify good luck and make people more attractive. This is why a lot of actors and actresses have them added in using special effects. Dimples aren’t just for actors though, anyone can have them! Just as long as you’re lucky that is.

What Do You Do If You Don’t Have Dimples?

If you don’t have any dimples naturally then don’t worry because you still have options. Cosmetic dentistry is a booming industry for this very reason. There are a few different ways to get dimples. The most popular are getting dimples added with cosmetic dentistry or injecting a filler into your cheek to add volume and create a dimple.

If you’re truly committed to having a dimple then there is one more option. You could get a permanent dimple surgically inserted into your face using cosmetic surgery.

This process involves cutting the cheekbone and inserting metal plates and screws to hold it in place. The bone will eventually heal and fuse together, creating a dimple that will be permanent.

This is by far the most costly option, but it means you’ll get a lifetime of good luck right?

Dimples are truly a marvel of nature and can’t be replicated or manufactured by man. The only way to get them is to be lucky enough to have been born with them in the first place. That being said, if you don’t have dimples and really want them then there are quite a few ways to get them. Whether you choose to use cosmetic dentistry to achieve the look or opt for cosmetic surgery, you’ll be able to achieve the coveted dimple look. Dimples are also very attractive on women, so if you’re having trouble meeting someone special then try getting some dimples! They don’t call them lucky for nothing!

Dimples are very attractive and endearing. They imply innocence, youth and nature itself.

This is why having dimples will make you more attractive to other people. The best way to make the most of your facial feature is to take advantage of them. Fortunately, there are two food types that can help give you a radiant smile.


If you want to improve the quality of your teeth, then consider adding more cheese into your diet. When you eat cheese, it naturally sticks to your teeth.

This is great because it acts as a cleaning agent and can reduce the amount of toothpaste that you need to use. It can even remove stains from coffee and red wine.

The next time you have some cheese, take an hour to slowly savor the taste. Be sure to also notice how your mouth feels after eating.

Most likely, you’ll notice that it feels a little dry. This is because it’s working hard to clean your teeth as you eat.


Bananas can do a lot for your body, and this includes acting as protection for your teeth. As you age, your mouth produces less saliva.

This can result in receding gums and tooth decay. Bananas help counter this effect by increasing the amount of saliva in your mouth. The more saliva, the cleaner your teeth as well as stronger.

With these two food groups in your diet, you’ll be well on your way to a healthy set of pearly whites. Combine these with regular cleanings and check-ups, and you should have no problems.

When you’re out having a good time with friends or on a date, the last thing you want to worry about is how you look. There are plenty of ways to decrease the visibility of any potential blemishes or red marks on your face, however.

For temporary fixes, there are a wide range of cover up products on the market that you can choose from.

Most of these cover up products are very good at doing their job, and can ensure that you look flawless whenever you need to. If you do opt for these products, however, be sure to avoid those that are too heavy.

If you choose a cover up that’s meant to camouflage red marks, for example, but it’s also yellow-toned and thick, then it could end up highlighting the blemish you’re trying to hide instead of hiding it!

Instead of using a cover up product, you can also use makeup as a camouflage. This requires a bit more skill than cover up products, however.

If you want to use regular cosmetics to hide blemishes and other imperfections on your face, then opt for a tinted moisturizer. With this product, you can opt for one that matches your skin tone (to minimize the appearance of spots or blemishes), or you can choose one that’s slightly lighter than your natural tone (to help blur out blemishes and dark circles under your eyes).

If you’re going for a concealer or foundation instead, then take the time to find one that’s right for your skin type. To do this, look for a product that lists its skin type on the package (for example, dry, normal, or oily).

Alternatively, you can also just squeeze some of the product out onto your palm and apply it to your jawline. Wait a few minutes to see if your skin starts to react, and remember that the less reaction you have, the better the product is for your skin type.

Should you decide against makeup, then a good tip is to apply a light layer of translucent powder over any blemishes or marks on your face. This will help set your makeup and also soak up any extra oil.

It should be cautioned, however, that not all powders are equal. If you have very sensitive skin, then opt for a translucent powder designed especially for sensitive skin types. Otherwise, you could be causing your skin more harm than good.

With these tips and tricks, there’s no reason why you can’t look perfect every time you step out of the house! Just be sure to dedicate a good amount of time to preening each morning before you head out, and you can have the confidence that nobody will be able to tell that you took more than three minutes getting ready that day.

Remember, you only get one chance to make a first impression!
