He hard counters any champion without ranged harass or a reliable gap closer so champions like Garen, Singed, Volibear, Olaf, and Try(sometimes) get beaten by him. In turn, any champion with any kind of ranged harass will rape him due to his horrid mana cost, horrid scaling into late game, and bad escape mechanic.
Bruisers with a reliable ranged harrass tend to do well against Teemo too, and there are a few of those.

For the most part, if you ever find yourself in a lane you do not think you can do well in and there is no one to switch with, Regrowth+Health pot start is usually a safe bet, and you can turn it into Philostone to help make up some of the lost gold if you have trouble farming.

Playing safely with Regrowth will usually allow you to survive most lane without losing too much experience.

Play a caster.

That technically works too, but so do bruisers like:
-Cho'gath (ap bruiser/tank).
-Galio (a real tank or a tanky-mage depending on how you build him.): You can do very well in lane against just about any opponent with this guy. Max Resolute Smite first for harrass.
-Rumble (ap bruiser): Can force most champions out of lane, and it is his own fault if he loses a lane. This is probably not the best option because Rumble doesn't always perform so well against ranged champions, but he can probably do it.
-Malphite (ad-armor bruiser): Malphite's Shard and Ground Slam are enough harrass+damage mitigation that Malphite wrecks Teemo once he actually decides to try to kill him in lane, but you need to spend a lot of time playing more defensively first. Malphite can get pushed around by Teemo near the beginning, but he rarely dies without a solid gank, and he will be the better laner after going back once or twice.
-Kennen (ap-mage, ad-carry, weird hybrid, or tanky-ap depending on your preference): Long-ranged harrassment and a powerful stun. I would be suprised if a Teemo ever killed a Kennen.

These are just a few suggestions. Most top-choices can beat a Teemo in lane if they have decent abilities. Teemo is only countering the very auto-attack heavy champions.

Garen can get him pretty good, seen a lot of ranked games where teemo was dominated by garen. Essentially garen is tanky enough to absorb a lot of teemo's damage with courage and can easily outrun him and harass at early levels.

mundo, can out regen his harass, and when low on HP, can swap to last hitting creeps with cleavers. If he did not get ignite, easy kill at lvl 7

teemo is amazing lvl 1-2 and hopefully you watch out at those times he's most likely to take his biggest leads, run back take your last hits with utmost care, and once tower comes just play it so he has to get hit by tower to harass you, tower will neutralize his trade leads, and eventually he'll have to leave or you'll have an opening

don't worry too much about teemo getting free farm, as his scaling isn't all that insane...feeding him kills though will not help at all, and give him the lead he needs to dominate your lane, and then move on to dominating mid/bot

talon is basically an autowin. Teemo beats alot of top laners due to his blind, which allows him to fight without instantly dying, and the fact that he's ranged in general so he can harrass very easilly. Talon beat's teemo because he doesn't rely on autoattacks too much (if you are building him properly), he has an instant gap closer that silences, and his damage is burst-based which is a teemo's worst nightmare.

Yorick is a good counter, also I find Vladimir a good choice to go against Teemo.

You could honestly just turret hug because Teemo is a joke in teamfights if he isn't fed and chances are the team wont build around the fact that they have a squishy top laner.
Say they have an AD carry bot with a Support thats not bulky like Alistar or Taric, then a squishy AP carry not like Mordekaiser or Gragas. That just leaves the jungler as a bruiser which isn't enough.

The team now has no front line and you can pick which squishy you wanna kill first. Probably that annoying teemo.
