Cupped, shrunken and distorted leaves will not get any better, but the new growth will be better. Calcium is needed in the formation of calcium pectate, the "glue" that holds plant cells together, and deficiency symptoms occur at the growing points, where the cells are dividing. I have seen recovery from calcium deficiency in as little as two days in Ceratophyllum demersum.
