SQLServer and if/case in where clause

Have a stored proc for displaying customer info which appears as:
create proc custinfo @nonzero smallint as
select * from customer
where...

The parm @nonzero (1 or 0) limits the display of customer's balances.  If
@nonzero = 1 then only customers with balances <> 0 display.  Otherwise
all customers display.

My issue is how best to express the where clause to accomodate @nonzero.

Currently I have: ((@nonzero = 1 and balance <> 0) or (@nonzero = 0)).  Surely there's a
better solution.

your way is ok. there are alternatives (dynamic sql is the simple one, writing a different select for each case another one), all with other drawbacks.
