using vtkGeometryFilter to convert to polygonal data

The documentation for vtkGeometryFilter says it can be used "to convert
data to polygonal type".  I need to convert vtkDataSet to vtkPolyData.  If
I use vtkGeometry filter, I just get the free faces out.  I need to get all
of the data out (including inside faces), because I then pass the
vtkPolyData into a vtkCutter to display a cut plane.  Right now, the cut
plane image is just an outline of the surface I wish to see.
