Dimmer switch exist?

I put in some recessed lighting a year ago and to put it simply I took the easy way out and found a switch that operated 3 sets of lights but only took the space of one switch.

Would really like to put them on a dimmer, and once again would like to go down the easy path and not have to cut out the gang box to install something bigger....Do they make a dimmer switch that would operate 3 different sets of lights similar to the picture I will post below with my switch? The alone switch to the right operates a wall outlet in case anyone wanted to know.

So you basically have four switches in a two gang box.

As far as I know.... there are no dimmers that will fit in that three switch unit.

Thanks, I figured. Been googling for such a switch but was hoping I was missing something.

I don't know if it's going to help you, but you can eliminate the receptacle switch if that room now has ceiling lights. It will take some minor changes to the receptacle wiring.
