Question:
What can be done when my wife's cemented bridge, not quite 2 years old. broke.

The actual metal underneath split through right in the middle of the 2 front teeth of a 7 tooth bridge. ... Visitor from FL

Answer:
It is not very likely the bridge can be repaired.

Before it is replaced with a new one, an analysis of what caused it to fail should be completed. A properly designed and fabricated bridge, when coupled with good oral hygiene habits can endure for as long as 30 years or more.
