At the least you need to remove the head and repair the results of bent valves when the valves collided with the pistons. You have an 'interference engine' meaning that if the cam gets out of time the valves collide with the pistons. You'll need a valve job with some new valves at the very least. Find a Honda specialist to help you.
FYI: You need to understand that timing belts are maintenance replacement items at regular intervals, like about 60,000 miles on your car. If they get contaminated with oil or coolant they're not reliable after that.
