electrical boxes depth

I installed and wired several receptacle boxes and hired someone else to sheetrock my basement. When I looked at the final product the boxes were at least 1/4" too deep even though I used the tabs on the side of the boxes to determine how deep to install the boxes. Is there any kind of extension made to get these boxes flush with the front of the drywall? Screwing a receptacle into a box that is too deep always seems to make for a loose outlet.
