The short answer is no, I don't think so. You could bet a little bit larger on the turn, but in general I like leaving villain with a bit of money behind, in a spot like this where an all-in is greater than the size of the pot.

1. All-ins over pot tend to scare players who like to call.
2. All-ins tend to scare players who like to call.
3. Players who like to call... like to call.

If we bet a bit larger, but still leave him with some money behind, he is more liable to call with his weaker draws and hopeless made hands. Sometimes either of these hand types will outdraw us, but our opponent will not be taking much money from us with your turn sizing or a larger one. You managed to put a lot of money in ahead, don't sweat the little bit that got in behind.
