Run dnssec-signzone on the signed zone file.  I recommend that you:

  rndc reload

Note that either the edit of or the running of
dnssec-signzone you need to increment the serial number.  You also need
to make sure that you supply the same (or similar) arguments to
dnssec-signzone when you re-sign the data as you did to begin with...

Re-keying (roll-over, algorithm change, etc) is a different (unasked)
question that is significantly more complex.
