Not permanently. Swelling means inflammation and possible infection. You would need to visit a dentist to treat the source of the problem.

I think the crown is not fitting properly for some reason or you get an infection under your crown too or gum infection. If there is a gum pocket and is also causing gum receding and inflammation. So go to your dentist as soon as possible.
