Crown issues?

Hey guys, so I got a crown put on about three weeks ago. Bite was high, got it filed down felt fine for a week or so. Now it almost feels either loose (no movement) or like it hits off of my gums when I talk. The only time it feels normal is if I push up on it (on the top teeth). Any ideas what could be wrong?
I got a root canal on the tooth years ago and cracked the filling recently. Only reason i got the crown put on.

Hi there, I'm not a dentist, but if the crown feels better when you press on it, then it might be that it's not fixed properly. The wisest thing to do is to go back to your dentist, as he is responsible for the crown being fitted properly, and let him adjust it.
