    I guess that happened because you changed your permalinks after your pages were already created

    I don't think there is going to be any problem with regards to that.

    Just make sure that every URL that has changed now has a 301 in place to the new URL and you'll be fine.

    It will take Google a few weeks to catch up and process all the changes
