How do you answer a question about consciousness without getting philosophical?
We don't practically know what makes up a "person" (to the extent that we haven't mastered neuroscience completely), teleportation is as much dying as going to bed is dying. Your neural makeup changes as you sleep and you wake up a different person than yesterday, everyday.
Teleportation, assuming it's a perfect reconstruction, will rebuild you in a more perfect way than sleep does, essentially. If you are merely the collection of electrical impulses and their physical network in your brain, a perfect replication could set your brain up to be exactly as it was before and "you" (that doesn't really exist) would be as much "you", if not more, as when you go to sleep and wake up.
But no, by default you are a copy after teleportation. You've transferred information to a new location.
Technically, if you're theorizing about say, wormholes, you'd essentially not be teleporting but just moving through distorted space, just as you move through normal space without "teleporting".
