Pictures would be very helpful to answer your question.  Generally, when a cheek implant is placed, it will fill out the area of the tissue overlying the implant.  So, if the dents and lines you have are over the area of the implant, they potentially can be improved.  Injectable fillers can be used to fill in dents and help with lines on the cheeks as well.
