You can use your thumb and index finger to put pressure on both cheeks, and then smile. Press for around 25 - 30 minutes, repeat every day. You should be able to get result in a couple of weeks.

With pursed lips

Purse your lips and suck your cheeks in. Lips should form a slight pout or should be pursed while you suck your cheeks in. Though, effectiveness of this method isn’t scientifically proven, therefore it isn’t sure if it will work or not.

Some make up

Well, it could be your last resort. When everything else fails, make up can give you fake dimples and they will work for a short period of time. But do make sure you do it right. You will have to apply foundation evenly on your face, then with a dark brown eye pencil make a small dot on the point where you want to have dimples but do make sure that the positioning of the dot/dimple is right.
Now, smudge the dot in such a way that they form a crescent. Blend it well with finishing powder. Though the dimple may not look that natural with makeup but it could be an option after everything else has failed.
