Announcement from Berkeley Prosthodontics (updated April 2, 2020): NOTICE OF TEMPORARY CLOSURE
Dear Berkeley Prosthodontics Patients,
In light of the evolving pandemic and strong suggestions by public health officials, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily close our practice from March 16, 2020 to May 3, 2020. We do not make this decision lightly, however our top priority is the health and well-being of our patients, families, staff and community. If you have an appointment scheduled with us during those weeks, our office will be in touch to help reschedule your appointment. In the case of emergency situations, we WILL have a dentist on call.
If you need emergency dental care, please call Dr. Au’s emergency dental line at 1-925-529-4704.
We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves and the guidance from the county, state and the CDC. For now, we will determine on a weekly basis when it is appropriate for us to return to our normal business hours.
Again, please understand that we are making this decision with the health and well-being of our patients, our families, our team and our community in mind. We thank you for your patience during this challenging time and wish all of you continued health.
Sincerely, Amy Au, Barbara Curtis, and the Berkeley Prosthodontics Dental Team

What are the advantages of tooth-colored fillings?
In the past, metal fillings were used to fill in cavities and to prevent dental decay. With modern technology, there is a different way to prevent tooth decay that blends with your natural teeth.
Tooth-colored fillings, or composite-resin restorations, are aesthetic, direct restorations, meaning they can be part of a one-visit service. Composite restorations look like teeth, unlike a silver amalgam restoration, and allow more conservative tooth preparation prior to a filling, so more natural tooth is preserved with composite, tooth-colored fillings.
