You wear a helmet to be extra safe. Why would you wear a damages helmet? Might as well stick with a beanie that's lighter and more comfortable in that case.

100%, read any helmet manual and it'll say that after any impact it needs to be changed.

That said I bonk my head quite often against trees, sometimes the snow, rocks. I haven't changed helmets yet because I haven't seen any damage yet to any part of the helmet. Even all those little bonks are making me think it's time to get a new one again soon...

Also, there are helmets made to take multiple impacts. My skate helmet from Triple Eight is like that. Any helmet with the hard EPS foam is a one nad done type.
good to know for next time
