A 62-year-old male asked:
How many times you can remove permanently cemented 4 unit bridge without affecting or damaging the teeth? Same bridge broke 3 times so far.

Not too many: If a bridge breaks that many times it may be time for a change in material. I am not sure whether you are talking about porcelain chipping of a porcelain fused to metal bridge or an all ceramic bridge. If you are talking about the latter then it's time to consider having it replaced with something much more durable like a porcelain fused to metal bridge.
