If the flange cannot be raised so that it sits atop the finished floor, which is preferred, natch, then there aren't many options.

If the flange rests on the finished floor it is at the correct height for a standard wax ring. If it's even with the finished floor one of the thicker wax rings might do the job. Below the FF, then you might need to look at one of the flange extenders that are on the market.

You could lay the new toilet on its side and place a straight edge across the sides that will touch the floor, crossing over the outlet, then measure from the straight edge to the "flat" surrounding the outlet - that part which the wax ring will seal against. Add that to how far below the FF the top of the flange is. Should give you an idea what you'll need.

Agreed, the oak transition will look better.
If I recall correctly my memory is excellent, but my ability to access it is intermittent.
