It's well known fact in real algebraic geometry that this does not
work in general. Here is a well known example example (also included
in my response to the OP):
x^3 - x^2 - y^2 > 0 && x < 10
The boundary is not x^3 - x^2 - y^2 >= 0 && x <= 10
This can be seen also on a picture:
<<Graphics`InequalityGraphics`
InequalityPlot[x^3-x^2-y^2>0&&x<10,{x},{y}]
You can see that the point {0,0} which lies on x^3 - x^2 - y^2 == 0
is not on the boundary of the region.
