Default Possible to over-tighten a hose clamp?

This may sound a bit stupid but I have to ask anyways. I noticed a little bit of coolant leaking from the upper radiator hose where it meets the engine block. So, I took a screw driver and tightened the hose clamp to the point where I wasnt able to turn the screw anymore. Nothing snapped, the hose didnt crack or anything but what I am wondering is over time could this possibly be bad for the hose?
