Wireshark is not using the qt theme integration

I don't know quite how to describe it, but when I first installed wireshark (in Linux Mint 19.1), it had a beautiful interface. After an upgrade I was having some trouble with the bytes display pane, so I uninstalled a bunch of qt5 packages. I was hoping the debian installer would identify all of the qt5 packages that should be re-installed (and just maybe fix my problem), and indeed the installation was successful and I can run wireshark again. But the interface is very different, not nearly as clean as it was initially. The font is not crisp, the Columns tabs look older, the buttons are a bit different. Is there a specific package/library I need to install to have that clean, crisp look again?

Thanks

P.S., the bytes display issue was resolved by simply zooming in a little.
