I personally use full face most of the time, my bud lost half a tooth from a relatively low powered shotgun. As far as a lower goes, a decent option is a "dust guard" for riding atv if a mesh is too bulky for your liking. A shemagh is a popular alternative but doesn't really protect teeth very well, helps more for shots not breaking skin on your face. Even though you've got dental doesn't mean it'll be fun to lose a tooth. Go with your gun to your local shop,(in a case) and chrono it there, and while you're there try on every mask/face shield and see what works best for you.
