Agh this is why you use a sander and take your time
It could cause the fretboard to crack at the neck bends if it's too deep and you might lose some tuning stability, alongside the obvious cosmetic effect

it's mostly aesthetic, although the chance of cracking is probably much higher now. it's possible to take some dust and epoxy and fill it...

**** happens...

I personally wouldn't worry about it to much... nothing you can really do about it.
Look at it this way. by the time it cracks, you will be ready for your next guitar customization project! lol
