In brief: False teeth material

It depends what you mean by false teeth.
Dentures are usually made of acrylic (plastic). Partial dentures can be made of acryllic and metal. Crowns can be made of gold, porcelain, ceramic, zirconia, or any combination of these. Dental implants are usually made from titanium.

In brief: Plastic / Porcelain

Denture teeth are typically made of a hard type of plastic material.
Additionally, though less common, they can be made from porcelain. The 'gum' portion is usually made out of acrylic. However, there are different plastics which can be used for this part as well, especially if you happen to have a sensitivity to acrylics. Keep smiling !

In brief: Plastic or Porcelain

There are basically 2 types of materials used for denture teeth.
They are either made of a plastic or porcelain material material. They wear at different rates depending of if they are opposed by natural teeth or another denture.

In brief: Different

They used to have ivory.
Porcelain was used a lot and it was great but expensive. Most are now very hard acrylic polymers and ceramics.
