Continuous white smoke after the engine has warmed up is a sign of coolant entering into the combustion chamber. Where it is leaking from is what needs to be determined. The engine is overheating because it is low on coolant due to this leaking.
Possible causes of the leak are: intake gasket, head gasket, warped or cracked head, and cracked block.
If you tell us what engine size you have, one of us may be able to tell you what is common with this engine to cause white smoke.
