Fluctuating electron density definitely results in temporary dipoles (van der Waals forces), but you also might want to think of the fact that these densities are constantly shifting and setting off chain reactions of fluctuating electron densities within the atoms or molecules around it. The constant shifting of the electron densities is what makes them fairly weak compared to other intermolecular forces.
