After removing the bathroom tile floor and plywood underlayment, I replaced some damaged diagonal 1 X 6" boards from the subfloor with a section of 3/4" plywood. The problem is the 3/4" ply butts up slightly lower, 1/16" to 1/8", than the remaining 1 X 6" flooring. My question:

Is troweling thin set mortar or cement over the plywood the best way to level it to the diagonal 1 X 6" flooring? OR will the cement/thinset mortar weaken the plywood over time, requiring a different approach?

filling it in with floor patch or thinset is fine.
