    sorry mate, once overexposed there is nothing you can do anymore. Your sensor reads for the signal for blue, red and green. Lets assume that the signal strength can vary from 0 to 100. a burn out reads for all three channels (red blue and green) 100. so there is no way to bring back anything.
    this is the reason why most people tend to underexpose digital pictures and push them later in photoshop.

    I would suppose that you are using a DSLR. In this case, you should have used the LCD to check for correct exposure.

    No, not by looking at the LCD screen only. But CHECK with the help of HISTOGRAM.
