I would visit the dentist to make sure no bone is broken and that the tooth is intact. The traumatic incident you experienced will take a little bit of time to recover from, but if the tooth and bone are intact, you will likely be back to normal before you know it! Loose teeth after experiencing trauma is normal, soreness will peak at the 3rd or 4th day and slowly diminish. I also want to let you know that sometimes a traumatic incident will "squish" the nerves and blood vessels at the base of the root, which can cause tooth discoloration and/or cause the tooth to die. If this is the case, visit the dentist for root canal therapy in conjunction with internal bleaching.

I just got a crown fit on my teeth but it hurts a lot. Does it require re-treatment?

Hypersensitivity is relatively normal following either a filling or a crown appointment, and should go away over time. If you didn't have sensitivity until after you got your final crown (after the temporary), then it's possible that the crown is hitting too hard on the opposing tooth. Go back to the dentist to get the bite checked if that is the case.
