Plastering Question

How deep can you make wall plaster over plasterboard?

I've removed some wooden panelling on one of the walls in the livingroom and replaced it with plasterboard. The new plasterboard isn't flush with the existing adjacent plasterboard near the ceiling. It is recessed about 12mm too far. 2 feet below the ceiling it is flush, so ok there. Can I fill the recess with 12mm deep plaster? Is it easier to remove the plasterboard and re-seat new plasterboard? Should I nuke the house and start from scratch?
