What causes the ASK and BID price to change?

I understand how trades get filled - market orders at the ask or the bid. When there are no more booked orders at those prices change occurs. But, there are times while watching the DOM and TnS the ASK or BID change prices changes and it appears as if nothing has traded. From a market mechanics point of view how do ASK and BID price change?
