Goggles protect your eyes, plus nose & mouth
Breathing holes do mean you can get hit in the mouth with paint, but it's a far cry from direct impact on your lip or teeth
Old school paintballers were not necessarily toothless due to being country hicks. Use of workshop goggles contributed to the facial features of early paintballers
Basically if it's not an approved paintball goggle then its not used
If ithey do not fit your face the you need other goggles

...but Im sure its not impossible to make a similar system designed specifically for paintball. Now that I think about it, it seems odd that no paintball company has tried to do anything like that. Nothing you'd want to build in your garage though...

Same kind as in the US
There is not protection under the chin, but I am trying to put in a few words about the difference between a riot lens and paintball goggles
The riot lens is a long way forward from the face. It is just a shield attached to the helmet, plus allows for a gas mask to be worn
Standards for paintball goggles require amongst other things:

A red dot should not be used like other sights close to your face with one eye. It should be used with both eyes open and by tricking your brain and focusing on the target you can see the red dot projected onto your target.
For them as goggles though if they were resolved to give the appropriate cover such as closing up gaps,were of appropriate materiel to standard - and marked as approved for paintball then I'd be happy with them

But a face shield isn't the only option for enhanced field of view either, there are lots of ways to make a lens with better field of view. Case in point the Navy MCU2P gass mask:
Wayyyy better than regular goggles for field of view and STILL keeps a lower profile, making it easier to aim in too!
