The symmetry restoration of Higgs models at finite temperature and in less than 4 dimensions is investigated. For that purpose a series of approximations to the constraint effective lattice potential is introduced. The continuum limit of these mean-field like effective potentials is discussed and it is shown that the symmetry is always restored at finite temperature. As an application we derive an estimate for the critical temperature.
