regex support

Does emacs support the regex syntax {4} or any of it's
variants?  I'd like to match a date a la 2005-04-19,
so I'm trying (for the year part) something like
"[0-9]{4}", but unless I'm doing something wrong it
doesn't seem to be working.  Assuming it doesn't
support that, is there a better way to match an string
of digits of length 4 than "[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]"?
