I checked the specifications your DVD drive and it can rewrite the DVDs.

Depends on what YOU mean by "overburn" -- as this has different interpretations.

The most common one is to write more data to the disk than it can normally handle, such as writing 750MB ton a 700MB disk, or writing 700MB to a 650MB disk.

Success in this varies greatly by the brand of media being used, as some handle this, and others don't.

There is no way that we here can predict the success of you doing this.

Others interpret this as meaning writing on top of an already used disk, as in "rewriting" it -- and all optical drives of recent years support the RW mode needed for this.  But then, you need RW disks to do this.
