Kindl\'s pearly whites before and after

DETROIT – Even though Jakub Kindl has a Twitter account (@JKindl4) with more than 4,300 followers, the Red Wings’ defenseman doesn’t spend much time on the social network.

However, he thought he’d get a rise out of some hockey fans by posting a picture from the dentist’s office on Monday afternoon. The photo of Kindl’s metal mouth makes the Czech native look more like more like a movie villain.

“When I was 17 I was hit in the mouth with a stick,” Kindl said. “So those were my real teeth. I had a little metal and have them moved out yesterday and I’m doing new crowns. Now I have my new teeth sitting on top of them.”

Kindl made the menacing image look more sinister after he discovered a new Twitter app that allows users to edit pictures before posting them to their account.

“The fun thing is that I didn’t realize that you can play with the picture too before you post it,” Kindl said. “So you can chance up the color and I made it look even worse. Why not? I was hoping to make people laugh.”

The “after” photo of Kindl’s new Chiclets (far right) is much more appealing.
