In brief: Full and Partials...
Denture bases are made up of pmma (polymethyl methacrylate) resin also known asacrylic resin.
Denture teeth can be made up of variety of materials-acrylic resin, modified acrylic resins, porcelain and composite resins. The metal framework is almost always made up of a chrome cobalt alloy. Gold based or semi-precious metals or even titanium can be used if necessary but would greatly add to the cost.

In brief: Depends
Intraditional removable dentures base metals are mixed into an alloy.
..However, semiprecious alloys can be used as well. If you're asking about metal framework for implant retained, then typically a gold alloy. The acrylic is very similar to the acrylic used in nail salons for lengthning/strengthning nails.
