Duration of Botox effect for masseter reduction
Your dimples will reappear after the effects of the Botox fade over the next 2-3 months, so try not to worry too much.

Dimples after Botox
Your dimple was likely created by your masseter muscle and should return full force with a month or two of the Botox fading.
I treat many people including myself with Botox for Bruxism, and believe it is overall a wonderful treatment. The side effect you had is not something I have heard reported in the literature, probably because the use of Botox for Bruxism is relatively new. I would have mercy on your doctor for giving you help with what can be a very painful condition.
Maybe, try fewer units of Botox next time and see if you can still get improvement in your Bruxism but keep your cute dimple.
