Hortiscope: Cutting dying branches helpful in long run

Q: We purchased an older home that has two beautiful spruce trees. They were planted back in the 1930s. However, they have many dead branches on the bottom. If I trim these off, will it ruin the look of the trees? What should I do? Will new branches grow after I trim off the dead ones?
