Is there anything I can do about lighting dimmer switches that buzz annoyingly?

I've just renovated a house and the only thing that is annoying me are the dimmer switches. Each bedroom has six halogen downlighters in the (low) ceilings, controlled by a single dimmer switch. I know that most dimmers buzz a little, but usually it is very quiet and it ceases when the lights are turned on full. These switches are quite noisy, and the buzz quietens a little but never stops.
Will I have to hunt out quiet dimmers - and then sacrifice the visual continuity (all the switches and sockets match)? Or, is there anything I can do (or get my electrician to do) to remedy the problem?
