Dodging and burning won't have any affect on white.

To make the gradient overlay:

Make sure white is your foreground color

Press the Add new fill or adjustment layer icon in the Layers palette.

From the pop-up menu select Gradient.

Choose the foreground (white in this case) to transparent option from the Gradient menu in the Gradient Fill dialog.

Set your other options.

Click OK.
