I have been told that because water has mixed with the oil and the car brings out white smoke that the gasket needs to be changed but I have my reservations because the car didn't overheat before the incident and there is no oil in the radiator, pls advice
Do you

The white smoke is a fair indication that you are burning coolant, you can get a head check done, this is a simple chemical test to check for Co in the cooling system, if positive you will have a head gasket problem.

There will be an oil cooler but the white smoke will not be caused by this, get the head check done to prove the point

The principal is the same but the application is different, if your mechanic is experienced with doing timing chain driven valve systems, there should be no problems, as long as he checks timing specs and set up procedures, a competent mechanic will do this before starting this job.
