Kitchen Cabinets

I'm using 1/2-inch plywood sides and spacers for new kitchen cabinets but I'm using 3/4-inch plywood for the bottom shelf. I plan to use pocket holes on all joints. I understand that I need to set my jig for 3/4-inch when drilling the bottom to attach to the sides. The only screws that won't protrude are 3/4-inch. They just don't seem to provide enough strength. Am I missing something? Is there a better way?
