If possible set 301 redirection for your indexed pages so that the new pages can be appeared in Google fast as well as you do not lose page rank.

URL Rewrite is a server side operation and is performed on the server. This usually results in a static page, dynamic page. When the URL rewrite is performed, the link gets changed at the browser without the knowledge of the searcher at the server.

A Redirect on the other hand generates a response to the client side using a new URL. In this case, the browser is presented with a 301 or 302 reply, which means that the site has been moved permanently or temporarily. The redirect also causes the new URL to show up in the address bar of the browser.

URL rewrite

    * Is a server side operation
    * Rewrite is done at the server
    * May result in a static page, a dynamic page, or an image file

Redirect

    * Sends a response to the client immediately, using a new URL
    * Causes the new URL to show up in the address bar of the browser

In your case you want to use 301 redirects to indicate the page has permanently moved.
