Oil level

After owning the car for 6 months ive just done a oil and filter change on the westie and unsure on oil level, i checked it before and the old oil was about 6-7 mm above the max mark on the dipstick.
Ive filled it to max now and everything seems ok ie oil pressure and no noises and been for a short drive. Should i overfill like before or keep it on the max mark.

Engine is a toyota 4age 1.6 16v
